CPC Hand-Delivers Patient Testimonies to State Leaders Pleading for No Budget Cuts to Health and Human Services
Date:7/9/2008

nt testimonies for the DVD, CPC also worked directly with patients in developing a postcard they could fill out and turn in that provided them with the opportunity to comment directly to our State leaders. This grassroots effort resulted in more than 1,500 postcards that were also delivered to the Governor's Office today.

Interim Chair for Californians for Patient Care Advisory Group, Liz Helms, who walked the Capitol and hand-delivered the DVD and postcards to Governor Schwarzenegger's staff, said she felt proud of the patient advocacy work done by CPC.

"Today, the voices of California's patients will be heard in Sacramento," said Helms. "They deserve a voice in this policy discussion and where budget cuts are made, especially when their healthcare is involved. In some cases, their very lives depend on it."

The DVD and letter provided to the Governor and Members of the Legislature encourages them to join forces with CPC to learn more about the patients the proposed budget cuts would impact. It also emphasizes the importance of not cutting from health and human services and provided statistics on how many people would be impacted if the proposed budget cuts became reality.

Patients in the video are from the Sierra/Plumas region as well as the Inland Empire. To receive a copy of the CPC DVD "Patients First!" please contact, Alisha Rosas at alisha.rosas@vmacommunications.com or call her at (909) 447-2405.

The DVD can also be viewed immediately at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deRdI7z5FuM.
