Support Kansas families facing cancer with HB 2031
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a constituent and volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I am asking you to vote yes on HB 2031. Palliative care is a team-based approach to symptom management that treats the person beyond their diagnosis, providing supportive care for pain, stress and other symptoms that accompany treatment for a serious illness like cancer.
Palliative care increases quality of life for cancer patients and their families and leads to better health outcomes and even reduced health costs for the state.
I want all Kansas families to have access to this type of care. In order to address the lack of understanding of palliative care and the barriers to accessing it, I urge you to vote yes on HB 2031 to establish the State Advisory Council on Palliative Care and a palliative care consumer and professional information program.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
