The ALS Association’s National Call for a Cure
Wednesday, September 19, 2007

On Wednesday, September 19, The ALS Association is launching National Call for a Cure, a day-long grassroots blitz to Capitol Hill. Next Wednesday, we are asking the entire ALS community - PALS, families and advocates from across the country – to call their US Senators and urge them to cosponsor the ALS Registry Act and join our fight for a treatment and cure. Even if your Senators already have cosponsored the ALS Registry Act, it's still important that you call. There's more your Senators can do!

Next week, Senators return to Washington after taking a recess for the Jewish holidays. And it’s time for the ALS community to increase the pressure on the US Senate to act on the ALS Registry Act. We need to let them know that people with ALS cannot afford to wait!

Forty-five Senators have cosponsored the ALS Registry Act – just six short of a majority! Your participation in the National Call for a Cure is urgently needed to build additional support for the bill and help pass it into law this year! Importantly, your participation also will to continue to raise awareness of ALS on Capitol Hill.

The National Call for a Cure is your opportunity to tell the Senate that much more must be done to find a treatment and cure. Together we can make a difference!

Please forward this e-mail to your entire address book – to your friends, family, colleagues and others whose lives have been touched by the disease, and ask them to set aside time next Wednesday to call their Senators. We want as many people as possible to participate in the National Call for a Cure – so please spread the word!

Detailed instructions, including contact information and a script you can use are available here. The website will automatically generate the appropriate talking points and contact information for your Senators after you enter your zip code. For PALS whose disease has robbed them of the ability to speak, participate in the National Call for a Cure by emailing your Senators.

Again, this is our opportunity to deliver a loud and clear message to the U.S. Senate: Join our fight today.
