HELP!!!Cut backs for Cancer research, dont let this happen to us!!!

Standard

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!!

ACS CAN Action Alert Email Header

Heather,

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? 

A “profound and devastating blow” for medical research Director, National Institutes of Health
“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.
Thank you,
Erin O’Neill Senior Director, Grassroots

About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
