How many of you have seen the report posted about Senator McCain’s desire to eliminate the Prostate Cancer Research Program within the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) — one of the most successful prostate cancer research initiatives. Now you can work with the rest of the advocacy community to counter this.
A coalition of advocates and advocacy groups is already working together because we are all concerned about funding the CDMRP over the next 5 years or so. On Monday, this coalition agreed that we can no longer lay low.
It is now really easy to send such letters or e-mails to your House representative and your two senators by using the Capwiz system on the ZERO web site. http://capwiz.com/zerocancer/issues/alert/?alertid=35483501
You can customize the letters there to make your own specific plea for why the Prostate Cancer Research Program and CDMRP need to be funded.
We need to send thousands of letters and e-mails to Congress over the next couple of weeks, so don’t hold back. Tell your representatives that this initiative is not to be cut. It has been at the very heart of many of the major advances against PCa over the past 3 years! Again the easiest way to do this is by using the e-mail system built into the CapWiz program on the ZERO web site.
