We were able to pass legislation that will create a new level of Comprehensive Stroke Hospital Designation to protect and serve our citizens who suffer a stroke. We received full funds from the Tobacco Settlement and Medicaid was also fully funded.

Lawmakers heard the voice of our You’re the Cure network loud and clear! We could not have done our job without the efforts of all our volunteers.

Thank you for your time and support. We hope you’ll continue to join us as we advocate for policies that build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
