Lend Your Heart to the "Many Hearts, One Voice for Medical Research" Petition!

by Kacie K. on Wednesday, March 20, 2013

There’s something big about to happen in Washington, DC, that you need to be a part of!

On April 8th, thousands of survivors and researchers, including hundreds of our You’re the Cure advocates, will join together in our nation’s capital to deliver a strong, unified message to Congress that our nation’s investment in medical research must be prioritized. It’s called the Rally for Medical Research- and just because you’re not in DC, doesn’t mean you can’t be there with us!

Add your name to our ‘Many Hearts, One Voice for Medical Research’ petition now. Your fellow advocates attending the rally will carry hearts proudly displaying the names of supporters from across the country, like you, who want our nation’s decision makers to get the message loud and clear: We need cures, not cuts!

Medical research saves lives, inspires hope, fosters innovation, and boosts the economy. Yet, our country’s investment in the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the world’s leading research institution, continues to decline. This threatens the fight against heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers- and the jobs of the researchers who have dedicated their careers to advancing science that saves lives.

It’s time to turn things around! This rally will make a significant statement to Congress that there is wide-spread support for a sustained national investment in medical research. And by adding your name to our heart petition now, the presence of the heart disease and stroke community will be that much stronger in Washington, DC.

Thank you for lending your ‘heart’ to this important movement!
