Demand the President Make REAL Health Care Reform A Reality

Please help those in Washington understand what is really at stake in the debate over health care reform: human lives of real people, like Eric De La Cruz.

To do your part, take just 5 minutes to download this 1-page PDF that helps tell the story of Eric De La Cruz, a young man in Nevada who passed away on July 4, 2009 while awaiting a heart transplant that was five years delayed because of lack of insurance (learn more about his story and his sister's fight for health care reform here). By faxing or emailing this document to the White House, you will be helping ensure Eric did not die in vain and that millions of others in America without insurance have a better future than he was given. Please do it today.

1. Download the Fax to the President and fax it to 202-456-2461 (try often, it may be busy!).

2. Call your Senator or Representative – find their phone # here.

3. Copy the following tweet and post it to your Twitter account:

Please fax the White House today with the #Eric De La Cruz Story for REAL #HCR  #ETA #publicoption

You may also call the White House comments line at 202-456-1111 or email the President by copying "In honor of Eric De La Cruz, I demand a strong health care reform bill and demand that it include a public option. Please read his story at and hold the line for REAL reform." and pasting it on the White House official email contact form here. 

Voice your support of a health care reform bill that includes a public option. If enough people call, email or fax, the message will get through.

Thanks for all of your support.
