Urge the State Senate to Help New York's Blood Cancer Patients

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and The Healing Project urge New Yorkers to contact your State Senator and tell them to Help New York Blood Cancer Patients.

In the next two weeks the New York State Senate will vote on Bill S3097 to establish a fund for Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma Research, Education and Treatment. The fund would benefit all those battling blood cancers. This legislation will place a "check-off box" on the New York State individual and corporate income tax returns, allowing New Yorkers to contribute to the support of this program.

Please take a moment to do one of two things (or even both if you like). Call Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno's office today, tell him you support Senate Bill S3097, and urge him to move it to the full Senate for a floor vote. His number is 518-455-3191. Or click here, sign and mail the letter to Senator Bruno's office. Please personalize the letter if you like.

Let your friends, family and co-workers know about this bill. Give them copies of the letter to sign and mail, and give them Senator Bruno's phone number to call. For many people with blood cancer, research offers the only hope for a cure. Please act today and help us pass this Bill! Your voice can make a difference!
