The start of the next legislative session is fast upon us.  Monday, January 16, marks the beginning of the 85th General Assembly, and we are already working hard on our 2013 legislative priorities. Please take a look at the issues we will be advocating for this session.

Some important dates to keep in mind:

  • January 16 from 7:30am-9:00am: Iowa’s Legislative Breakfast in the Capitol Legislative Dining Room. Join fellow volunteers and staff for a light breakfast, in an informal setting, while meeting with legislators to discuss how we can decrease the cancer burden in Iowa.
  • February 26 from 7:30am to 3:00pm: ACS CAN Day at the Capitol, online registration is available now. Look for more information about Day at the Capitol in the coming weeks.

We are going to need your help to meet our collective goal of reducing Iowa’s cancer burden. Here’s how you can make sure our legislators know cancer issues matter:

  • Read our email updates to keep yourself informed
  • Respond to action alerts – it takes less than five minutes and has a huge impact
  • Sign on to letters to the editor for your local paper
  • Join us at local legislative forums to make the voices of cancer patients, survivors and their families heard

If you’re interested in getting involved in one of these ways, please contact Cassandra Furlong at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 515-727-0057.

We know that with your help we can make great strides this legislative session in the fight against cancer.
