Ask Your Representatives to Increase Cancer Research Funding
Your U.S. Representative has an opportunity to support increased funding for medical research at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), but they need to hear from constituents (that means YOU). Representatives Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Joe Kennedy (D-MA) and Dave Reichert (R-WA) are circulating a letter to the House L-HHS Appropriations Subcommittee, which asks that the NCI budget be increased to support research in pancreatic and other deadly cancers. We need as many Representatives to sign this letter as possible before the Friday, March 18 deadline!

All congressional districts are not eligible for each action alert. To determine if your congressional district is eligible to participate:
