PanCAN National Call-In 2013

What is the National Call-In? The National Call-in is an opportunity for all Pancreatic Cancer Action Network supporters across the country to add their voices to those who will be in Washington, D.C., for Advocacy Day to tell Congress that pancreatic cancer research needs to be a national priority.

How does it work? On Monday, June 17th, all of PanCAN’s supporters will receive an email with instructions on how to place calls to their three members of Congress. The email will include the office phone numbers and a short script of what they’d like you to say. The calls should take less than 10 minutes, but they will significantly impact PanCAN’s efforts to make the pancreatic cancer community heard. Click here to sign up to receive this email today.

Prizes! After making your calls on June 18th, be sure to fill out the feedback form below the talking points. Everyone who does so will be entered into a raffle drawing for one of the following two prizes:

• A two-night stay at a Washington, D.C. hotel for Advocacy Day 2014
• A $100 gift certificate to our Shop Purple store

More than 5,600 phone calls were placed to Congress during the 2012 National Call-In. These calls were a tremendous help in augmenting the in-person meetings that happened during Advocacy Day. Please mark your calendar now for the 2013 National Call-In on June 18th and ask your friends and family to do the same. With your help, PanCAN can double the amount of calls that are placed to members of Congress during this year’s Advocacy Day and make sure that legislators hear our message loud and clear: Pancreatic Cancer: Know It. Fight It. End It!

Quote from Emily McKenna, Design Manager: My Auntie Cam was a loving teacher and a modest hero. She inspired me and countless others throughout her lifetime, to live confidently, give back wherever possible, and show compassion in all endeavors. I was blessed to have known her and to have experienced firsthand the resilience of the human spirit. I advocate for PanCan support in honor of her eternal legacy of love.
