      • 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.
  • 11. 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.
