Tell Congress: Cures, Not Cuts!
Lupus researchers will lose valuable time in the fight against lupus if Congress allows sequestration to occur. We can’t let lupus research languish. It’s time to tell Congress: WE NEED CURES, NOT CUTS!
Medical research should be a high national priority. The NIH is the largest source of funding for medical research in the world, and the impending cuts would be devastating. Congress must work to ensure that medical research is funded at a level that will bring about progress in better treating and diagnosing diseases like lupus. NIH-funded research is the engine that powers tomorrow’s therapeutic discoveries, and people with lupus deserve a full arsenal of treatments in order to combat the disease.
Take action today! Send an e-mail to your Members of Congress telling them “We Need Cures, Not Cuts!”
