President Obama’s fiscal year 2016 budget eliminates all funding for the Centers for Disease Control prostate cancer program. Congress has the power to protect the CDC Prostate Cancer program. We ask for your advocacy to protect this life saving program.
Please go to http://malecare.org/cdc
There, you will find a sample letter, which you are welcome to copy whole or in part. Representatives hear from very few prostate cancer survivors and family members so your letter will be surprisingly powerful.
As you probably know, Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in America. Almost 30,000 American men die from prostate cancer every year. And, African American men die from prostate cancer at a rate that is more than twice the rate for white men. Incredibly, President Obama’s FY 2016 Budget request eliminates funding for prostate cancer activities at the CDC.
Please take a few minutes to visit http://malecare.org/cdc and decide for yourself if you want to support the CDC program for prostate cancer.
