SIZZLING  NEWS...New Advocacy

The Scleroderma and Fibrosis Research Enhancement Act of 2015: Help and Support is Needed in Key States

AdvocacyAttention scleroderma supporters who live in: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is prepared to introduce the Scleroderma and Fibrosis Research Enhancement Act into the Senate. But before she can introduce the legislation, she needs a Republican Senator to join her to lead this important bipartisan effort. Any Republican Senator can become a scleroderma champion, but first they need to be educated by the people they represent…YOU!
Some senators are particularly well-positioned to lead this legislation based on their positions on key committees or their leadership on rare disease issues.

If a Republican Senator represents your state, the community needs you to make the commitment to reach out to their office on Capitol Hill and ask them to lead this important legislation. 

Please take action now and write your Republican Senator today >>
