Stop Breast Cancer for Life: Be My Support, Be My Strength, Be My Bra


Do you have about 15 extra seconds to spare today? I'm sure you do! If so, click here and scroll down to "Sign the Petition" or here to go directly to the Sign the Petition page to end "drive thru" masectomies.

"Desperate Housewives" star Marcia Cross joined Lifetime, Senator Landrieu(D-LA) and Representatives DeLauro (D-CT) and Moran (R-KS), at a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, January 23, to give voice to the 20 million signatures collected on urging Congress to end the practice of “drive-through” mastectomies, when women are forced to leave the hospital following their physically and emotionally difficult breast cancer surgeries before they and their doctors may feel they are ready to go home. Senator Landrieu and Representatives DeLauro and Moran are championing the bipartisan Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2007 (S.459/H.R 758), which includes no mandates but allows a woman and her doctor to decide if she is best off going home or staying in the hospital for at least 48 hours after having a mastectomy.

It will only take a few seconds of your time and you may save thousands of lives!!


Please take a moment and support those with breast cancer!
