Need help getting "Compassionate Access to Experimental Treatments" bill passed!


Posted on: 06/04/2010

 
The Musella Foundation has recently joined with the Abigail Alliance to try to get this bill passed!  You need to act now as the meeting is Thursday.  We need people to show up in Washington, but if you can't, at least call or email your U.S. Representative (not Senators)!
 
This bill will allow access to some experimental therapies before they receive full FDA approval. There are a few really exciting brain tumor treatments in this category. (Look for other articles in this news blast and watch for another special  news blast tommorrow!)
 
Here is the message from the Abigail Alliance:
 
 
 
Fm:Abigail Alliance-We need you! Hill briefing?Compassionate Access Act
 
Dear all,
 
        I want to invite you to the June 10 9:00 ? 11:00 AM ET Capitol Hill 
briefing on the recently reintroduced Compassionate Access Act in room 
122 of the (House) Cannon Office Building (Independence Avenue and 1st 
Street, SE).  A light breakfast will be served.
        We need you to come out to show your support for the bill, and for 
the media to cover this very important lifesaving and life-extending 
bill.
        Abigail Alliance cofounder Steve Walker will be giving an excellent 
talk and Power Point presentation.  We will have a couple of patients 
talking also.
        After the briefing, we are asking our supporters to visit their U.S. 
House Representative to lobby for the bill.  Making an appointment 
with your Representative?s legislation person ahead of time is 
important.
