l affected by PF to join the CPF's Campaign ACT advocacy program
  • Patient and CPF member in-district meetings, calls and emails to Members of Congress in support of the PFREA
  • Local and regional grassroots efforts by patients and CPF members to raise awareness in their local communities by sharing their stories with the local media
  • CPF staff meetings on Capitol Hill to fight for passage of the PFREA and raise awareness of PF and the need for increased attention and federal funding for the disease

  • The CPF has celebrated National PF Awareness Week for the past six years, visiting representatives on Capitol Hill with patients and family members participating and telling their stories. Over the years, the CPF and its advocates have met with hundreds of Members of Congress. As a result of these efforts, the CPF was recognized for its work on behalf of the PF community through the passage H.R. 42, which passed the House unanimously in 2007.

    This year, the CPF grassroots campaign with in-district visits is expected to help increase the number of co-sponsors for H.R. 1079. There are currently 32 co-sponsors of the bill.

    CPF members and others affected by PF are encouraged to meet with their Members of Congress during the August recess. The U.S. House of Representatives recess is scheduled for August 3rd through September 4th. The U.S. Senate will recess from August 10 through September 7th.

    PF patients, families and those affected by PF can help with 2009 Awareness efforts and help gain passage of the PFREA by joining the CPF's advocacy campaign, Campaign ACT. For further information, please visit the CPF at www.coalitionforpf.org, call us at 888-222-8541, or email us at
