DEADLINE THURSDAY: Ask your Senators to Sign the Support Letter to Fund a Mesothelioma Patient Registry

As Congress prepares legislation that funds various federal department and agencies for next year, we ask that you to write to your U.S. Senators by close of business on THURSDAY, APRIL 12th and urge them to support $500,000 for the CDC to establish a national mesothelioma patient registry.

Fill our the form below (our system needs your address to determine which elected officials to send the letters to) to send a letter to your two U.S. Senators which asks them to sign a letter being circulated by U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (IL) urging the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Labor, Health and Human Services and Education (L/HHS) Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee to include $500,000 in the upcoming L/HHS funding bill for the CDC to develop a national mesothelioma patient registry.

Thank you for taking action now to ensure that funds are provided for the CDC to develop this important mesothelioma patient registry.

    My husband has this deadly peritoneal mesothelioma. It has been traced back to time he spent in the Navy and on a ship while it was in dry dock and undergoing a complete overhaul. The sailors worked, ate, slept, and spent some of their free time breathing this horrible product. A registry to keep track of who developed the disease would be most helpful to those researching this horrific disease.

  2. My wonderful husband passed after just turning 63. There was NO treatment that resulted in extending his precious life. He is deeply missed by his family and friends who knew him as a warm, selfless, giving person. He was my husband, my best friend and my soulmate.

  3. Signed and shared in memory of my husband, Guy Howe, who was taken by this dreadful disease way too young.
