SAVE A LIFE
SEND A LETTER!
If you live in California, PLEASE send a letter supporting continued funding for Valley Fever vaccine research and development to your representatives in Sacramento. The address for members of the California Assembly, Senators and the Governor is simply Capitol Building, Sacramento CA 95814, and can be as simple as a brief handwritten note.
Take a look at a letter that was delivered to Senator Dean Florez, Senate Majority Leader (D:Shafter), at the end of May. (Florez Letter) The original letter was signed by the leadership of the Valley Fever Americas Foundation, Rotarians from the Rotary Clubs of Bakersfield and concerned citizens participating in the Annual Valley Fever Benefit Golf Tournament. You are welcome to use this letter as a model. It will be more powerful if you substitute your own examples and reasons.
If you are looking for information describing the current situation, follow this link (link). Continuing education for community leaders at all levels is necessary to keep the problem visible. You can do this!! It would be great if you would also send a copy by email to VFAF@bak.rr.com.
