Action Alert!

In GIGANTIC news, the STAR Act, the most comprehensive childhood cancer bill ever, passed the House yesterday! I watched the live feed, and hearing the powers-that-be talk about something so close to our hearts - on a national stage, no less - was really moving and left me feeling so hopeful. It was nice to see that gavel drop after the vote, but we have more work to do, and WE NEED YOU!

The entire childhood cancer community is working together to get the STAR Act signed by President Obama before the end of December. This bill will secure more effective treatments and research for childhood cancer patients and survivors, and we are closer than ever to making it a reality. So here's what you can do to help:

Click HERE to tweet your senators - now! You can enter your zip code, and their Twitter handles will be automatically added to your tweet. There is also suggested language to chose from, but basically we are asking them to support the STAR Act before they dismiss on Friday.

You can also call your senators - click HERE to find their Washington office numbers. If at all possible, talk to an actual staff member rather than leave a message. And if you want to give them a personal reason to support the STAR Act, feel free to mention this girl:

She's a true STAR act.
