Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent and a volunteer with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I am writing to thank you for supporting many of the cancer-fighting issues that matter to me this legislative session.






I was disappointed that funding for the Minnesota Palliative Care Advisory Council was not included in this bill. Palliative care is coordinated care that treats the patient, not just the disease. It is for any age, any stage of a serious illness. Palliative care lowers health care costs and improves patient outcomes. The Advisory Council is working to address barriers to palliative care and provide legislative recommendations to increase access to this type of care. I hope we can work together next session to fund this important work.

Finally, I look forward to working with you and your colleagues in the future to raise the tobacco sales age to 21. Tobacco 21 is an important policy that can continue our work to prevent youth tobacco use and nicotine addiction.

Thank you for your work to help improve the lives of cancer patients and survivors, and prevent people from ever hearing the words 'you have cancer.'

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
