        • Colorectal cancer screening saves costs.
        • The CRCCP is a program with proven success.
        • The CRCCP should be a national program, not just a program limited to 25 states and 4 tribal organizations.
        • Fund the CRCCP at $70 million in fiscal year 2013.
    • Colorectal Cancer Control Program
      • Parting Words
        • An effective advocate ties their personal story with key messages and facts.
        • Don’t be apologetic for asking your lawmaker to fund the CRCCP at $70 million. This is a proven program that deserves funding.
        • In this fiscal environment, if you ask for it, you have a better chance of getting it. If you don’t ask for it, you won’t.
