Virtual Capital Hill Day is May 7/8, 2014

Tell Congress to Stop Cuts to Cancer Care Now!


How Can I Participate in Virtual Capital Hill Day?
  • Join Florida Cancer Specialists in calling and emailing members of Congress in the House of Representatives to deliver a simple, but powerful message — Stop the Sequester Cut to Cancer Care. There is a bill already in the House – the Cancer Patient Protection Act (referred to by its bill number of H.R. 1416) – that would stop the sequester cut to cancer drugs. This bill needs to be passed immediately. In order to make that happen, we need as many supporters as possible.
  • Ask your U.S. Representative to Co-Sponsor the Cancer Patient Protection Act (HR 1416). Nothing is more powerful for a member of Congress than hearing from constituents!
