In one week, I?m going to Washington. I?m meeting with our leaders in Congress to ensure the voices of cancer survivors are heard on healthcare reform. An amazing 50,000 people have already signed our petition calling for life-saving healthcare reforms to protect cancer survivors?but we need more. Will you help us reach our goal of 75,000 names before Congress votes? Sign your name and send the petition to your friends and family:
Where we stand on healthcare reform is simple, and this is the critical moment to make your voice heard:
No American should be denied health insurance coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
- No American should lose their insurance due to changes in health or employment.
Heated debate on healthcare reform has dragged for months and dominated the news all summer long. Draft bills have now passed through the committee process in both the House and the Senate. As the bills are revised and move to the floor of both chambers, we need your help to remind our national leaders that the needs of cancer survivors must not be forgotten. It?s a critical moment in the history of our fight against cancer.
I?ll deliver the signatures from our petition to Congress in seven short days. Will you add your voice and help us reach 75,000 signatures before I go to Washington? It only takes a moment to sign your name and share it with your friends, and every single name makes a difference.
On LIVESTRONG Day, Lance shared his personal story about our nation?s broken healthcare system; a system that tried to deny him coverage when he needed it most. It?s so important that we fight for reforms that protect cancer survivors and make absolutely certain they can get access to the care they need when they need it.
