National Breast Cancer Coalition

SAVE THE DOD BREAST CANCER RESEARCH PROGRAM.

Urge Your Senators to Sign on to Durbin/Blunt Letter to House and Senate Armed Services Committees and save breast cancer research!

As you may know The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY 2018 passed without a vote on the Durbin/Blunt amendment that would save the DOD BCRP. The House version of the bill did not include the language that would destroy these programs and the Senate and House will conference to work out the differences between the two bills. Senators Durbin and Blunt will be sending a letter to the Chair and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees requesting that the NDAA Conference Committee reject sections 733, 801, 892 and 893 of the FY 2018 Senate NDAA bill to  save these programs.

It is urgent that you contact your Senators and ask them to sign on to the Durbin/Blunt letter. Your message is:

Senator _____, I urge you to support the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program by signing on to the Durbin/Blunt Letter to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees requesting that the NDAA Conference Committee reject sections 733, 801, 892 and 893 of the FY 2018 Senate NDAA bill. Contact  Jessica McNiece -- Jessica_McNiece@durbin.senate.gov or Dan Burgess -- Dan_Burgess@blunt.senate.gov to add your name to the letter.

Thank you. And let us know what your Senators say.
