Stand with breast cancer survivors of North Carolina
Join us in reaching our goal of 20,000 signatures in 48 hours to deliver to Kay Hagan's office.
Senator Hagan, stand with us!As breast cancer survivors of North Carolina, we know that early detection and treatment are critical to long-term survival.
But many women who are uninsured or underinsured do not seek treatment because of cost. Young black women have twice the mortality rate from breast cancer as young white women, and are more than 5 times as likely to receive treatment delays.
We are alive today because medical care was available to us.
Eighteen thousand people die in this country each year because they have no insurance. On behalf of our sisters, we ask that Senator Hagan support a strong public insurance plan, available nationwide from day one and accountable to Congress and the voters.
