Support $120M for Prostate Cancer Research Funding in FY2022

Dear [Congressman/Congresswoman],

I am contacting you to request your support for innovative translational prostate cancer research at the Department of Defense. In 2021, almost 250,000 men across the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and over 34,130 more will die of the disease - that's an almost 30 percent increase. With the help of targeted research at the Prostate Cancer Research Program, we can stop these trends.

Among American males, prostate cancer is the most-diagnosed cancer after skin cancer and is the second highest cancer-related cause of death. As someone who has been impacted by prostate cancer, I am asking you to sign the Dear Colleague letter to the House Appropriations Committee being circulated by U.S. Representatives Sanford Bishop (D-GA) and Neal Dunn (R-FL).

The letter urges the Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense to provide $120 million in funding for the Department of Defense's (DoD) Peer Reviewed Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP) in the Fiscal Year 2022 DoD Appropriations bill.



As your constituent, I hope you will join U.S. Representatives Bishop and Dunn in their effort to ensure this unique program can continue its groundbreaking work on behalf of prostate cancer patients. To sign onto the letter, your office can contact Jonathan Halpern in Rep. Sanford Bishop's office at Jonathan.Halpern@mail.house.gov as well as Sarah Gilbert in Rep. Neal Dunn's office at Sarah.Gilbert@mail.house.gov.

Thank you in advance for your support,
