The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) is asking individuals to call or fax their Representatives to urge them to support the Dept. of Defense (DOD) Breast Cancer Research Program (BCRP). On the NBCC website you can find a list of Representatives by State who have signed on to DOD BRCP letters in the past.Â Â If your Representative is on that list, please ask them to continue to show their support for ending breast cancer by signing the letter to the Defense Appropriations Committee, which is recommending $150 million for the DOD Peer-Reviewed Breast Cancer Research Program for fiscal year 2009.
If your Representative agrees to sign the letter, her/his staff should email or call one of the following letter sponsor staffers to make it happen: Jean Doyle in Rep. Nita Lowey’s office at 202-225-6506, Jeremiah Blake in Rep. Judy Biggert’s office at 202-225-3515, Lisa Salerno in Rep. James McGovern’s office at 202-225-6161 or Jordan Forbes in Rep. Tom Davis’ office at 202-225-1492.
Please email Bree Romero or call her at (800) 622.2838, ext. 579 to let her know that your Member has agreed to sign the letter or if you have any questions.
