As a result of a recent U.S. Senate mark-up, the funding for the Department of Defense Ovarian Cancer Research Program (DOD OCRP) has been slashed in half from $20 million to $10 million. Research conducted under the DOD OCRP program is critical because it is solely dedicated to ovarian cancer.

As the U.S. Congress prepares to go into conference, whereby the U.S. House of Representatives (House) and U.S. Senate (Senate) meet to finalize appropriation levels, a “Dear Colleague” letter is being circulated in both the House and the Senate urging the Congressional leadership to follow the original $25 million funding level that was adopted in the House with respect to the DOD OCRP program.

Please help us make sure that the Dear Colleague letter obtains enough signatures to make an impact. If we act in unison, we can speak with one voice to obtain $25 million in appropriations for ovarian cancer research.

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance provides easy instructions that allow you to request your U.S. Representative and (two) U.S. Senators to sign the Dear Colleague. If you are serious about the fight against ovarian cancer, PLEASE CALL TODAY.
