Tweet Your Support for Cancer Survivors to Members of Congress


LIVESTRONG supporters are in Washington, D.C., for the One Voice Against Cancer (OVAC) annual lobby day urging Congress to make cancer a top national priority, and you can help advance their message. The LIVESTRONG Foundation is a member of OVAC, a coalition of 49 nonprofit organizations that believe robust federal funding is crucial to making advances in cancer prevention, treatment and research.

While on Capitol Hill, advocates will ask that federal agencies working to fight cancer receive increased funding.

WE NEED YOU to help amplify our message by sending one of the suggested messages below to YOUR members of Congress through Twitter. A list of Twitter handles can be found here.

Suggested Tweets:
My #cancervoice is loud and clear! Support funding for research and prevention. @livestrongadv @OVACInfo [Insert Member of Congress Twitter handle]

Join our #cancervoice! Make funding for cancer prevention and research a top priority. @livestrongadv @OVACInfo [Insert Member of Congress Twitter handle]

Your messages will make a difference as Congress sets the budget for the next fiscal year.

Showing strength in numbers is so important to our efforts. THANK YOU for being a voice for change and taking action.
