ve-through' mastectomies," added Meredith Wagner, Executive Vice President of Public Affairs, Lifetime Networks. "We are grateful to Marcia Cross, Senators Landrieu and Snowe, and Representatives DeLauro and Moran and all of their colleagues in both parties who have already listened, and we hope that Congress will act this year."

Lifetime was made aware of the problem of "drive-through" mastectomies by Representative DeLauro and by viewers in 1996 and responded by creating an online petition. The petition at myLifetime.com has been signed more than 15 million times in the past four years and more than 20 million times since its launch.

BACKGROUND ON MARCIA CROSS

Marcia Cross is a passionate advocate for breast cancer awareness, as she has several friends who are survivors. Cross was upset to learn that women have had to endure "drive-through" mastectomies, and was eager to travel to Washington, D.C., to meet with Members of Congress to bring attention to this issue. Cross can currently be seen starring on television's hottest dramedy, "Desperate Housewives," on ABC. As 'Bree Van De Kamp,' the ultimate perfectionist, Cross brings to life Wisteria Lane's most complex character. Last year she was nominated for an Emmy Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. In the show's first season, Cross received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series Comedy, and an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. The critically acclaimed show won a Golden Globe for Best Television Series Comedy, Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and a People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama. Aside from her successful career as an actress, Cross has also made time to continue her education. She recently completed her clinical training to earn a Masters Degree in Psychology. Cross makes her home in Los Angeles with her husband and twin daughters. LIFETIM
