Help Create a Cancer-Free Future

Dear [Decision Maker],

Volunteers from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network are visiting the Roundhouse today asking lawmakers to make cancer a legislative priority in New Mexico.

As your constituent, I am writing to urge you to listen to the voices of cancer patients, survivors, and advocates like me when making important decisions this session that affect us all.

I'm asking for your help this session with the following critical issues:

Vote YES to increase the tax on cigarettes by $1.50/pack with an equivalent increase in the tax on other tobacco products.

Vote YES to increase funding for evidence-based, statewide tobacco use prevention and cessation programs by $1 million.

Support Medicaid coverage for tobacco cessation services and medications.

Support legislation to restrict the use of indoor tanning devices to adults only.

Support legislation to expand awareness and access to palliative care services.



Thank you for your help to prevent cancer and make New Mexico a healthier state, today and for future generations.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
