On this page, we will be providing updates of which Senators have signed onto the Dear Colleague letter requesting $30 million to be allocated to the Department of Defense’s Ovarian Cancer Research Program in FY 2011.
NEW: View final letter with signatures of Senators: DoD Approps Ovarian Cancer Letter
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or comments.
Thanks to all the advocates from across the nation who contacted the offices of their Senators to request their support for this program. If one or both of your Senators did not sign onto the letter, you can still ask your Senator to contact the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and let the Subcommittee know that they are in support of the $30 million dollar request.
If you enjoyed reaching out to the Senate and want to get more involved in advocacy efforts to increase Congressional support for ovarian cancer research and awareness, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance will be hosting free webinars in the near future to provide training. You can email email@example.com and we’ll email you when the dates for the webinars are finalized.
