Send a thank you to Obama

Scott Benner

President Obama recently said that he, “guarantees” that he will sign an executive order overturning President Bush’s policy on stem cell research.  I guess that it goes without saying that our family is thrilled that diabetes research will soon have the full support of the US government.  If you are similarly minded please take a moment to thank President Obama for his his full-throated support by using the links provided in the letter from the JDRF (below).  

 

The following is from the JDRF:

 

Greetings Fellow Advocates--

Below you will find a link to an action alert in support of an executive order withdrawing limitations on federal funding for stem cell research. For those of you who are new to our advocacy base, the ban that will be lifted will allow scientists to receive federal funding for what is considered to be our best hope for a cure for Type 1 diabetes and a host of other diseases.

Thank the President for His Stem Cell Research Support!

As this is our first contact with the Obama administration, it is vital that we have our voices heard in support of his signing this executive order.  Please respond to this alert by clicking here.  The entire process will take less than 60 seconds to complete and send.  It will also help our cause if you pass this along to your contacts.  And always remember that all communication with the White House and your legislators are counted and are vital in our quest to find a cure.

Warmest Regards,

Fred Sacks, New Jersey State Chair (and the father of a son with Juvenile Diabetes)
