Dear [Decision Maker],

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I am writing to ask that you support increasing federal appropriations for cancer research and prevention funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

For these reasons, I ask you to support $39.3 billion for NIH, including funding provided from the 21st Century Cures Act; $6.375 billion for NCI, and $517 million for cancer prevention activities at CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control.
