Grassroots Action Needed for the Senate DOD BCRP Letter

Contact your Senators and ask them to sign the DOD BCRP letter today! 

We need to get signatures on the “Dear Colleague” letter in support of the DOD BCRP program. We have 14 Senators who have signed to date (last year we had 22 Senators who signed in support of the program).

If your Senator(s) is not on the list, please contact them and ask them to sign on this year. The deadline for your Senators to sign is tomorrow, March 29th! 

Your message to your Senators is:
I urge you to show your support for ending breast cancer by signing the letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Cochran and Ranking Member Durbin calling for $150 million for the DOD peer-reviewed Breast Cancer Research Program for FY 2019.

If your Senator(s) agrees to sign the letter, her/his staff should email Francesca Longo ( in Senator Gillibrand's office to make it happen. 

Also email us at NBCC and let us know that your Senator(s) has agreed to sign the letter or if you have any questions.

Thank you for taking action today!
