To my Friends

Make Your Voice Heard

Dear Friend:

We have been lobbying Congress for months working to increase funding for both the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute, as well as cancer programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We've just received word that Congress has listened and will vote TOMORROW on a bill that would provide a:

* 3.1% increase for the National Institutes of Health
* 2.7% increase for the National Cancer Institute
* 5 % increase for CDC's Cancer Prevention and Control programs

If passed, this would mark the first increase in funding in years! Put simply, the more money that goes to these institutions, the more money that is invested in the fight against cancer.

There are 10.5 million cancer survivors living in the U.S. today and Congress needs to hear from every one who has been affected by cancer. Please, make YOUR voice heard by sending a letter and amplify it by sending this message onto your friends, family and co-workers.
