Let's invite John Kerry and someone from Bush league.

When you check out your senators, if you see they are Class III it means they're up for re-election and more likely to want to please.

Here is my email:

Dear Mr. Kerry and Mr. Edwards,

Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the

United States. I am inviting you to visit our lung cancer support group.

http://www.lchelp.com. Please come & see the pain these people are

undergoing because lung cancer research is so underfunded and because of

negative remarks and actions from others, including doctors, who appear to

believe they caused their own cancer.

Many people suffer from all kinds of diseases/accidents that are partially

self-inflicted such as heart disease, stroke, accidents, etc. They are

not ostracized the way lung cancer patients have been. More people die of

lung cancer than breast, colon and prostate combined.

Please consider finding out more about this disease and helping all of us as we struggle with this disease. Did you know only $1,200 is spent for each lung cancer death as compared to $11,400 for each breast cancer death and $8,000 for each prostate cancer death? The 5 year survival for lung cancer is 14% versus 86% for breast cancer and 97% for prostate cancer.

Your expression of a desire to increase funding for lung cancer when elected would boost our efforts tremendously. Just getting the exposure that comes with your campaigning will be of great help in getting the word out to other elected officials about the urgency of our need.

We need your help--all 1,400 of us in the lung cancer support community and

the 680,000 that will die in the next 4 years.

We would love to have you drop by our board. Chat nights are currently

scheduled on Friday nights and can be accessed by reading the main page.

These are interactive chats and your participation would be so welcome.

Thank you and God Bless!



Hope you'll think this is ok.

Very good Tina. Good point about diseases that are self inflicted, such as heart disease. Why do they get good press and we get treated like third class citizens? I'm going to add those stats in all future letters.
