Dear Community,

We urgently need you to move into follow-up action TODAY. Rep. Doris Matsui has extended the sign-on deadline for our appropriations request to the close of business on Monday, April 3.

We want to make this a bipartisan effort, and at this juncture we especially need Republican Members of Congress to sign-on to the Bone Marrow Failure Disease Research Program in the Department of Defense Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2018.

To accomplish this sign-on, your Member of Congress should contact Megan Herber in Representative Matsui’s office at megan.herber@mail.house.com or 202-225-7163.

Should you have any questions or need support, please email  or call me (weis@aamds.org; 301-944-6874). Please do NOT contact Rep. Matsui’s office directly, as staff are inundated during this appropriations time and counting on all of us to reach out to achieve visible support.

Thank you for swiftly and responsively taking action to ensure continued funding for our critically important research. For your reference, here again are the relevant letters from Rep. Matsui:

- "Sign On" letter
- Call for Support letter
