C3's Congressional Butt-In

Hello to all of you,

I would like to encourage you to participate in the Congressional Butt-In tomorrow 3/19 sponsored by C3 Colorectal Cancer Coalition. It is a simple process. Call the toll free number below, enter you zip code and tell your senators and representative that you want them to "'Cover Your Butt." For information on the pending legislation, you can go to Cover Your Butt.

All of us at C3 appreciate your support. Please forward this information to anyone you think would be willing to participate.

Thank you!



Please forward this information to your friends and family and urge them to make the call TOMORROW.

Congressional Butt-In
WHO: You
WHAT: Call Congress and demand that they cover your butt!
WHEN: Wednesday, March 19th, 2008
WHERE: By telephone
HOW: Call 866-615-3375 to get connected to Congress
Three bills sit in the 110th Congress that, if passed, will provide coverage of nearly every butt in America that should be screened for colorectal cancer: those belonging to the poor and underserved, the elderly and those with private insurance. Learn about those bills here. Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 19th, anytime from 9 AM to 5:30 PM EDT, call 866-615-3375.

You only have to make one call. You will be prompted to enter your zip code and be directly connected to the offices of your Members of Congress (your two senators and representative). When you reach the offices, simply say, “I urge my senator/representative to support colorectal cancer legislation and COVER MY BUTT!”

The more phone calls the offices receive, the better chance these bills have of getting passed so urge your friends and family to join you in the Congressional Butt-In tomorrow, Wednesday, March 19th!

The C3 Congressional Butt-In is made possible thanks to a grant from Genentech BioOncology.

C3's mission is to win the fight against colorectal cancer through research, empowerment & access.

    I just finished my second year of med school. My close friend and mentor before med school was a professor of anatomy who passed away from colon cancer in 2005 at the age of 48. I watched him experience the disease from diagnosis to his last hospital stay, and I will be forever marked by seeing such an amazing person go through this experience.
    I have RSS-d your blog and will follow your progress and keep you in my prayers. Please contact me if i can do anything for you or if you just want to talk to someone.
    God bless you!

    Hi Christine,
    I work for Echo Entertainment, producing a health show called "Beside Manor". The talk show is about two doctors (one conventional practitioner and the other alternative/holistic) going head to head on how to help people with various ailments. We are looking for someone who would be willing to talk about colon cancer and how it has affected their life. Please contact me via email if you would want to participate or know of someone who would. We are located in Los Angeles. Hope to hear from you!

    Thank you!
