Tell Congress to Put Patients First When Addressing Healthcare


“The universe doesn’t give you what you ask for with your thoughts; it gives you what you demand with your actions.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli

By Elridge Proctor, Director of Policy, Lung Cancer Alliance

The uncertainty of what “Repeal, Replace or Repair” of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) mean is weighing heavily on the minds of patients, cancer survivors, families and the American public. We know this is especially true for you, so we are rallying advocates to write to their Members of Congress to ask them to prioritize continuous access to equal or better healthcare coverage for people with lung cancer and other pre-existing conditions.

You can send a letter and/or email now to your Senators and Representatives to tell them to put patients first when addressing healthcare. Once you have sent a letter we ask that you share it and invite family and friends to take action with you.

With the same click you will be inviting your Representatives to come learn and receive comprehensive information on lung cancer early detection, treatment options and the quickly expanding field of data and technology through LCA’s “State of Lung Cancer” Congressional Briefing on March 16, 2017.
