Tell Leadership it’s Time to Pass the LTA!

Rally and Reach graphic

The Lymphedema Treatment Act is one of the most broadly supported bills in Congress. This is a great achievement— but we have to make sure the top decision makers know about it— so they can move our bill forward this fall.

Please contact the following Senate and House leadership offices following the instructions below! Note that most offices only allow incoming email from constituents by requiring a zip code match, which is why an email option is not able to be provided here, with the exception of one office.

Together, we can pass the LTA!
