Take Action To Save Lives!

Dear [Decision Maker],

ACS CAN is advocating for funding for the NJ Commission on Cancer Research (NJCCR) including restoring the program's base appropriation of $2 million, as well as restoration of two appropriations for the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

The NJ Commission on Cancer Research has spent the past 30 years leading the fight against cancer in the Garden State, and it is the only statewide institution that provides peer-reviewed scientific cancer research grants to all eligible institutions throughout the state. This grant process employed by the Commission is the model on which the largest institutions, including the federal government, fund cancer research.

Additionally, funding for the Rutgers Cancer Institute of NJ at University Hospital in Newark has helped to elevate the center's national status and expedite research and patient care initiatives.

As your constituent, I urge you to support restoration of the $2 million appropriation for the NJ Commission on Cancer Research and two appropriations for the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey in the state budget.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
