Save the Creating Hope Act…Urgent!

creatingHopeLarge3TweetToday_edited-2

We can’t let HOPE die in the US Senate! 

If the Creating Hope Act (S. 4010, HR 4439) does not pass the Senate by December 11th, THIS YEAR we will lose the best tool we have ever had to inspire drug developers to produce Childhood Cancer and Rare Pediatric Disease drugs. This bill has produced 26 drugs in the last eight years.  It has produced two childhood cancer drugs. We only have four drugs ever approved specifically for childhood cancer.  Because of the incentives in this bill, for the first time, we now have several kids’ cancer drugs in development.  We can not allow this bill to die on the Senate floor! So far, only two of our 100 Senators have cosponsored it since it was passed by the House on September 30th.

Do this NOW! Urgent! PLEASE CALL TODAY

Call each of these Top Senators and urge them to pass the Creating Hope Reauthorization Act S. 4010:  Leave them with this message: Please do not allow the Creating Hope Reauthorization Act – S. 4010 to die on your watch. We only have 4 drugs specifically approved just for childhood cancers which are not the same as adult cancers. Please help get this bill passed before December 11th!

Senator Mitch McConnell 202-224-2541, Senator Chuck Schumer 202-224-6542, Senator Lamar Alexander 202-224-4944, Senator Patty Murray 202-224-2621, Senator Sanders 202-224-5141, and Senator Warren 202-224-4543

Do this NEXT! 

We must take quick action. We have less than 30 days. We want to target the H.E.L.P. Committee Members with calls and tweets.  Please involve your friends, family, neighbors and followers!  Call each Senator’s office, their phone numbers are listed below. If you get the answering machine instead of a live person, leave a short message like the one below:

Please do not allow the Creating Hope Reauthorization Act – S. 4010 to die on your watch. We only have 4 drugs specifically approved just for childhood cancers which are not the same as adults cancer. Please cosponsor today!

Tweets are very quick and effective too! All you need to do is copy the tweet below, paste it in your twitter program, then add a Senator’s twitter handle (listed below) and press “tweet.” 

After 8 successful years, please don’t allow the Creating Hope Reauthorization Act-S. 4010 to die on YOUR watch! We only have 4 drugs specifically approved just for #ChildhoodCancer.
