South Carolina - still not on board!

Look for our Lance Armstrong Foundation (LiveSTRONG Army) Events coming soon.............
We are going to kick off a letter writing campaign in South Carolina - beginning with the Upstate counties of South Carolina. We will have an event each month in a different county leading up to a big blowout LiveSTRONG event in the Spring just before LiveSTRONG Day in May, when we return to Washington, DC, to once again speak with our Congress members concerning the legislation introduced May 16, 2007, that would make cancer a National Priority.
I will keep you posted -
we need everyone to come out and "ENLIST" in the LiveSTRONG Army. These letters will be your stories of how cancer has affected your life or a friend or family member and they will make an explosive impact when we deliver them to our members of Congress.
The update is 70+ from the House and Senate on board -
NONE WHICH ARE SOUTH CAROLINA! We have to demand them to step up!
Note: To all of my LAF Co-Delegates from the States around the country whose reps have signed on - We (Upstate SC Delegates) met yesterday and decided that a letter writing campaign would benefit our cause greater at this point, here in SC. If you have any suggestions/advice for us (Upstate SC Delegates) - please email me or leave comments or post message on LAF message board.
