We need cures, not cuts!

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am a constituent and volunteer with the National Brain Tumor Society, and I am joining with thousands of research advocates across the nation to ask you to take action to prevent further cuts to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The National Institutes of Health is the largest funder of brain tumor research in the nation and it stands to lose billions of dollars if sequestration goes forward. As a disease with a 34% five-year survival rate and just four (4) new therapies in the last 30 years, we cannot afford to see the work of NIH undermined by budget cuts. What is even more alarming is that these cuts come at a time when scientific opportunity has never been greater. Further cuts will prevent critical research projects from reaching completion and ensure that other potentially lifesaving research will never even get off the ground. We need cures, not cuts.




I respectfully request that you work with your colleagues and the Administration to find a solution to preserve the nation's investment in medical research, which is critical to those living with brain tumors and those yet to be diagnosed.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
