Help us Pass the MD-CARE Act
In February 2013, a bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives introduced the MD-CARE Act Amendments. This legislation S. 315 and H.R. 594 seeks to update the landmark MD-CARE Act law that has done so much over the past 13 years to extend and improve life for those impacted by Duchenne and other forms of Muscular Dystrophy and to spur breakthroughs in research that we believe are getting us closer to effective therapies and treatments. We currently have 105 House members and 27 Senators cosponsoring the MD-CARE Act Amendments - We need more cosponsors to enact these Amendments this year.
Below are 3 simple ways you can ask your members of Congress to help continue the progress we've made over the last decade by passing the MD-CARE Act.
1. Make a Phone Call
HELLO MY NAME IS ___________
I WOULD LIKE TO URGE REP/SENATOR _______________ TO COSPONSOR THE MD-CARE ACT - (BILL NUMBER - HR 594/S 315) HIS/HER SUPPORT CAN HELP SAVE THE LIVES OF THOSE LIVING WITH DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.
Feel free to add any other information you wish, if you have a family member living with Duchenne you can provide additional details about your family
2. Send an Email
3. Engage on Social Media
Note: If using Twitter, make sure you tag your memebers of Congress using the “@” symbol and their Twitter names (called a “handle”). You can find their Twitter handles by entering your ZIP code here (click the [+] Expand link to see Facebook/Twitter links).
