Dear [Decision Maker],

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I am concerned about federal funding for breast cancer research. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, accounting for one of every four cancers diagnosed in U.S. women. Each year, 40,000 women die from this terrible disease.

Currently, cuts to funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) mean that fewer scientists who apply for grants from the NIH have a chance to receive one. The result? Many promising ideas for better ways to detect and treat breast cancer could go unfunded. We cannot let past progress be lost.
