Josh and Kimberly Wimberly traveled from Alabama to Washington DC, and participated in C3′s 4th Annual Call-on Congress earlier this week. They met with Representative Spencer Bachus’s health policy staff and asked for the Representative’s support of legislation that will help save thousands of lives and increase awareness regarding the importance of early detection and screening for colorectal cancer.
As a direct result of their efforts, Representative Bachus signed on to cosponsor the Colorectal Cancer Prevention, Early Detection, and Treatment Act (H.R. 1189).
Is your Representative a cosponsor of this important legislation? If not, call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask your Representative to cosponsor H.R. 1189. Or take a minute to email your Representative and ask them to cosponsor H.R. 1189.
* * * Remember, the House of Representatives is set to vote on health care reform Sunday afternoon. As a result the House email system and Capitol Switchboard are experiencing high volumes of traffic. If you can’t get through today please try again next week. We need your voice to win the fight against colorectal cancer!! * * *
