Tell Congress to Fund Melanoma Research!

By March 15, 2009

The Skin Cancer Foundation is urging American citizens to write to their congressional representatives to request $10 million for melanoma research, over double last year's total.

Those interested should visit www.skincancer.org to send e-mail letters before Friday, April 3, in order for the request to be added to the Defense Appropriations Bill. The goal of the foundation is to have at least 5,000 letters sent by that date.

Anybody who is affected by skin cancer, or has a loved one with the disease, should definitely take a few minutes to send a letter! With so many billions of dollars flying out of Washington these days, your efforts may have a real impact.
