Komen Champion Rep. Helena Moreno will propose an amendment to the House Appropriations Committee at their 9am meeting this MONDAY, April 29th to establish an LBCHP line item in the state budget for FY14. We are asking/urging you to email TODAY (4/26/13) the below listed representative and urge them to support Rep. Moreno's amendment to re-establish LA Breast & Cervical Health Program funding so we may continue to provide life saving screenings.
We have constructed a script for you to assist in making these emails / calls. We have attached additional information for you as well for your reference. Thank you for your time and support!
Please invite additional individuals to contact these Representatives as well.

Hello Rep. [NAME],
I’m writing on behalf of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which serves communities throughout your district. I urge you to support funding for the Louisiana Breast & Cervical Health Program (LBCHP), which has been eliminated from the FY14 state budget.
For many women, LBCHP is the only point of access to early detection. Without LBCHP, many of them will be forced to forgo recommended screenings, instead turning up at emergency rooms in our public hospitals with later staged cancers that are much more costly to treat, and for which there are many fewer treatment options.
Monday morning at 9:00 am, Representative Moreno will present an amendment to re-establish funding for this crucial safety net program. I urge you to support this amendment.
Thank you for your time and service,
Role with Susan G. Komen
