The following is what I received via email from ACS. This is a sickening to think that they are doing cut backs!! I have already called and left my information and sad NO to these cut backs. Please pass it along, we can not take one step forward and two steps back in cancer research. We all know someone who had it, has it or will have it. Support the Cause!!
Is Congress really going to let this happen?
If they don’t act on “the sequester” by Friday, the cuts to cancer research funding could be devastating.
The sequester will indiscriminately slash spending across the entire government, without considering the effectiveness of the programs at risk.
Send a message to your Members of Congress immediately. Let them know they must protect funding for cancer research.
How bad could it be?

“The impact will be damaging immediately” A cancer center CEO
“Fewer new grants would be approved” Wall Street Journal
Please act now. This is not the time to halt the incredible breakthroughs we’ve made in fighting this terrible disease.
