Please support ACS CAN Patient Quality of Life Legislation
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a constituent and volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I ask that you co-sponsor the Palliative Care Hospice Education and Training Act (H.R. 3119). Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses like cancer, focused on improving patient quality of life by providing relief from the pain and stress of a serious illness. This type of care is provided by a team of doctors and other specialists working together, and is appropriate at any stage of a serious illness. H.R. 3119 would expand evidence-based palliative care research, create a national public education campaign, and establish a workforce training initiative for health professionals. I urge you to co-sponsor this important legislation.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
