Advocacy Action Day — July 11, 2018
On July 11, our National Advocate Attendees will be having over 140 meetings with elected officials on Capitol Hill and they need your help from home to amplify the message:
- Co-sponsor the Women and Lung Cancer Research and Preventive Services Act of 2018 (S.2358 or H.R.4897).
- Approve $20M in FY19 Defense Appropriations for Lung Cancer Research within the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP).
Here are some easy ways to support your fellow state constituents:
Most people don’t realize that lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer among both men and women, across every ethnic group! Raise awareness among your community by sharing these fact graphics in a social media post. Don’t forget to use #SaveHerLungs and #LCSummit18 to contribute to the broader social media conversation.
Support Critical Legislation
We know that lung cancer impacts women differently than men, but we don’t know why. This critical women’s health imperative is now a national priority through the Women and Lung Cancer Research and Preventive Services Act, but we need your help to make sure your elected officials are on board! Send a pre-written email or tweet today.
