Don't put lives at risk - VOTE NO on cuts to A-35 tobacco tax funded programs

Dear [Decision Maker],

Even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, cancer hasn't stopped - and neither have we. Adding to the uncertainty of COVID-19, over 27,000 Coloradans will be diagnosed with cancer just this year and, unfortunately, and estimated 8,220 will succumb to the disease.

On behalf of the over 200,000 people in Colorado whose lives have been affected by cancer, I am writing to express my deep concern over the proposed $16 million cuts to Amendment 35 tobacco tax-funded grant and screening programs as part of an effort to balance the state budget for FY 2020-2021.

I urge you to vote NO on cuts to Amendment 35 tobacco control, breast and cervical cancer screening and other vital cancer, cardiovascular and pulmonary disease (CCPD) programs.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this request to preserve Colorado's investment of Amendment 35 tobacco tax dollars in improving the health of the people of Colorado.

Please vote NO on cuts to amendment 35 cancer prevention, screening, and tobacco control programs.
