We Need Your Personal Stories for Congress
On February 10th and 11th, NF Midwest executive director Diana Haberkamp and others will be the visiting congressional offices of your Senators and Representatives in Washington, DC to ask for support for NF research through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense’s (DOD) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP). For more information on these programs and our advocacy efforts go to www.nfadvocacy.org.
What we need from you are personal letters to take to your representative and senators. These letters should tell the story of how NF affects you and/or your loved ones and encourage your congressman/woman to care.
Please create one letter for each of your TWO senators and for your representative. You may look them up at whoismyrepresentative.com. You must also include your address and name in the letter. If you can include a photo that adds impact. Here is a sample of a letter.
Please, get them to us as soon as possible via one of the options below.
