Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — marisaandscott @ 11:48 am

Today is the National Call-In day for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. If you are so inclined, click on the link to get information on how to contact your members of Congress and encourage them to help get the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act moving.

It took me less than 5 minutes.

Here’s the detail from PanCan:

National Call-In

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 – Today is the Day!

The National Call-In is an opportunity for all Pancreatic Cancer Action Network supporters across the country to join together with one voice to tell Congress: It’s time to pass the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act so that researchers and scientists have the tools they need to make true progress in fighting the disease.

Your calls will reinforce the in-person meetings that nearly 700 advocates are having today on Capitol Hill as part of Advocacy Day 2012. During the Call-In, you will be asking your members of Congress to sign a Senate or House letter which will help get the bill moving to a vote and to the president’s desk by the end of the year.

  2. I called Eleanor Norton’s office on June 26 to weigh in on this crucial legislation. Please let me know what else there is to do. Aunt Carole

  3. Hi Marisa,

    I was so touched by your writings and the pureness of your life when reading your day to struggles and just the ups and downs of the life handed to you. I never forgot about you, Scott and the boys. It’s been some time since Scott has passed on. The boys are older now.
    Even though the calendar has days, weeks and months the heart doesn’t. A calendar can say 4 years has gone by, but for the heart it could still feel like yesterday. I don’t know if you’ll get this. If it does, you and your family are still remembered and hopefully you have found some peace and you smiles out weigh your tears.
