BENEFITING: National Disease Clusters Alliance, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 13, 2011
Dear Friends, Family, and Co-Workers,
I am writing this email to you to solicit your support for an important cause. Many of you are aware that I have been a volunteer with National Disease Clusters Alliance (NDCA).
The purpose of NDCA is to bring together scientists, affected community members, epidemiologists, public health officials, toxicologists, environmental health advocates, cancer survivors, and other interested persons to develop more efficient and effective ways of promptly identifying and responding to cancer and disease clusters.
Here is a link to more information about our board of directors and science advisors.
We recommend major changes to national policy about disease clusters. Read about one such change here in the proposed legislation "Trevor's Law."
We are working on several upcoming projects and events. We are inviting Erin Brockovich and Senator Barbara Boxer to speak at an NDCA event in San Diego. NDCA is hosting a national conference on disease clusters next Summer in D.C. We have many communities currently facing disease clusters that need our assistance. Please help us save lives.
I have been training to run a half marathon on November 13th, and have decided that raising money for NDCA in conjunction with my running the half marathon is an important and worthwhile objective. I would ask that you consider making a tax deductible contribution to NDCA. Any contribution to NDCA would be appreciated whether $5, $20, $50, $100, $1000 or more. PLEASE do not feel that you are obligated to contribute any amount.
Thank you for your support,
