(This amendment provides $2.5 million from the general fund each year and establishes a Pediatric Cancer Research Fund to provide grants to pediatric cancer treatment centers in order to promote a greater level of pediatric cancer research in the Commonwealth. The Virginia Department of Health would accept proposals through an independent review committee and then make awards based on those recommendations to treatment centers.)
