Vote YES on SB 65 to support Quality of Life

Dear [Decision Maker],

I urge you to vote YES with your Senate colleagues on Quality of Life for Cancer Patients.



Doctors and patients want palliative care, but a lack of understanding of what it is and how it should be provided remains one of the chief barriers. SB 65 will help remove this barrier by educating families and providers on the benefits and opportunities available to them through palliative care.

Integrating palliative care into mainstream medicine for all patients and families facing serious illness offers an essential opportunity to deliver on the promise of patient-centered and family-focused care, while also achieving health care's triple aim: better health, better care, and lower cost.



This year, an estimated 26,400 Kentuckians will be diagnosed with cancer and will need comprehensive palliative care. Please do not ignore this opportunity to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families and vote YES on SB 65.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
