Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill

I got this in my email today. I checked it out on snopes before putting it in here. Breast Cancer is one of the scariest things that a woman of any age can think of happening.
Please, read it and sign it and then right to your states congressional representative.

Good idea, but like the website says, it is much more effective to call, write or email your Congressman and Senators directly.

They respond to their constituents more readily than they do to petitions that have been signed by loads of people who can't vote for them.

Here's an email list: http://www.webslingerz.com/jhoffman/congress-email.html

Make sure you mention the bill number and your home town in the email.
