Know Your Legal Rights
We are committed to ending discrimination against children and adults that have had childhood cancer.
Some of the laws governing elementary and secondary education do not apply to higher education. However, under both the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, colleges and universities receiving federal money are required to provide reasonable modifications, accommodations or auxiliary aids that enable qualified students to have access to, participate in and benefit from the full range of educational programs and activities that are offered to all students on campus.
We want to work with the current Administration and Congress to continue to work together to support cancer survivors and protect their access to healthcare in the future.
