Chelsea Crump, daughter of oncology pharmacist Sue Crump, testifies today in Olympia on SB 5594, a bill that would regulate the handling of hazardous drugs by health-care workers. Chelsea’s mother, Sue Crump, died of pancreatic cancer after longtime workplace exposure to toxic chemotherapy, which InvestigateWest Carol Smith covered in a July investigation.

On Jan. 17, Sen. Karen Keiser introduced SB 5149, which would require that the state cancer registry capture occupational data from cancer patients.
