Dear [Decision Maker],

As a Virginian and a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I care deeply about finding new treatments and cures for the 42,770 Virginians who will be diagnosed with cancer in 2017. Now more than ever it's vital for you to support an increase in state funding for cancer research. Important and potentially lifesaving cancer research is being conducted right here in Virginia, thanks in large part to support from the General Assembly.

I'm counting on you to make a commitment to increase funding for cancer research and to encourage your colleagues to do the same. It's the only way we're going to reduce death and suffering from cancer in our lifetime.
