ACS CAN PA Looks Forward to Making Cancer a Priority This Legislative Session

Dear [Decision Maker],

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is asking for action to help fight cancer in Pennsylvania.

Maintaining funding for Pennsylvania's tobacco prevention and cessation programs is one of the crucial steps that must be taken to save lives. These crucial programs help those who are trying to quit smoking and work to prevent young people from ever starting the deadly addiction.

There are several other issues ACS CAN will be working on with the Governor and state legislature this year. They include:

-Strengthening Pennsylvania's Clean Indoor Air Act by eliminating exemptions in the law so that 100 percent of Pennsylvania workers are protected from the health risks of exposure to secondhand smoke indoors;

-Maintaining funding for HealthyWoman, the state breast and cervical cancer screening program for low-income, uninsured women administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Health;

-Advocating for a balanced approach that promotes safe prescribing and dispensing of pain management medication that does not interfere with access to these medicines for the cancer patients and survivors who need them;

-Working to make it easier for people to consume a healthy diet and lead a more physically active lifestyle consistent with ACS CAN recommendations;

-Advocating for prescription drug legislation that would streamline and improve the prescription drug prior authorization process for patients, increase transparency for the prescription drug formularies and lower health care costs by ensuring prescribers have access to more efficient electronic reporting systems;

-Ensuring that the state continues providing low-income Pennsylvanians access to comprehensive and affordable health care coverage through the expanded Medicaid program.

It is projected that 80,000 Pennsylvanians will be diagnosed with cancer this year. These common-sense actions will help lower that number and save lives. ACS CAN PA looks forward to working with you this year to accomplish these public health initiatives to improve the health of Pennsylvanians.

Sincerely,
