Tomorrow, C3 is sponsoring a Congressional “Butt-in” for the Cover Your Butt campaign.
We’re asking everyone to pick up the phone tomorrow, March 19th, anytime between 9:30 am and 5:30 pm Eastern and call 866-615-3375.
You’ll be prompted to enter your zip code and the system will automatically connect you to the offices of your Members of Congress. When someone answers, you just need to urge the Legislator (through the person who answers the phone) to “COVER YOUR BUTT.”
We’ve already briefed the offices on the campaign, so they know that you are asking for Congress to support 3 pieces of legislation that will significantly expand access to colorectal cancer screening and treatment programs. Some of the legislation is modeled after similar breast and cervical cancer legislation. These programs have proven to be very successful and have saved money in the long run. Treating cancer under Medicare is much more expensive than screening a 50-year old for cancer under a publicly-supported CDC program.
So tomorrow, (or today, depending on when you’re reading this) pick up the phone, call 866-615-3375 and talk tush with Congress…you’ll never have a better chance.
