Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent and someone who cares about preventing cancer, I was pleased to hear the Senate allocated a 10% increase in the general fund budget for the Alabama Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (ABCCEDP). However, I urge you to consider a more significant increase that will not leave thousands of eligible women at risk due to underfunding of the program. Because of decreased funding from private sources and the CDC, the ABBCCEDP has been forced to offer mammograms every other year, rather than annually as recommended. Thousands more low- income Alabama women could be screened annually with a $500,000 increase to the program.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
