Tell them it is important!
I have good news! The House and Senate budget bills for the government's next fiscal year include an increase in funding for cancer treatment and research. If passed, it would reverse the trend of flat or declining funding over the last six years. Not only will this money improve early detection and treatment options, it will support new research grants that may someday lead to the cures.The FY2009 budget bills are being negotiated in Congress and we must act quickly to make sure they are passed. I just took action by writing my legislators and asking them to support the budget bills and the new investment in the fight against cancer. Join me in helping to support increased funding for those who are fighting this disease and prevent future victims from facing it at all.It's easy to help - just click the link below to join me insupporting new federal funding for the fight against cancer:http://komenpolicy.org/campaign/us_fy09_budget?rk=R7ee5T9qagi2W
