Thank you for making cancer issues a priority

Dear [Decision Maker],

This year 34,000 Missourians will hear the words "you have cancer." Although a cancer diagnosis is life-changing, you have made great efforts this legislative session to reducing the pain and burden that comes with a diagnosis.

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I want to thank you for passing and supporting legislation that will save and change lives across the state for the better. For the past few months, we have asked you to make cancer issues a legislative priority and it is clear that you listened. Thank you for maintaining life-saving funding Show Me Healthy Women and for tobacco prevention and quit assistance through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. Thank you for passing palliative care legislation aimed to better patient quality of life at any age and any stage of a chronic disease diagnosis, and for supporting availability of substitute biosimilar medications to make treatment more affordable.

We are all only one degree away from cancer, but with your help we can ensure a healthier Missouri for future generations.

Thank you,
