Stop The Drive Through Mastectomies


Breast Cancer Petition
Protect Breast Cancer Patients from "Drive-Through" Mastectomies

The Bipartisan Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act Needs Your Support!Representatives Rosa DeLauro (D-Connecticut) and Joe Barton (R-Texas) and Senators Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) recently re-introduced the bipartisan Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act in Congress. Thanks to its viewers, Lifetime has so far collected more than 23 million online petition signatures urging Congress to pass this critical legislation, which would end the practice of so-called "drive-through" mastectomies when women are forced out of the hospital only hours after invasive breast cancer surgery. Help restore patient and consumer rights to breast cancer patients and their families:
Sign Lifetime's growing petition. Lifetime will continue to deliver the signatures to Congress and make your voice heard.
Share your story. If you or someone you love has experienced a drive-through mastectomy, we want to know. Tell us in the official
Breast Cancer Survivor community discussion.
Call or write your members of Congress and ask them to support the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act. You may reach your member of Congress by calling the U.S. House of Representatives switchboard at 202-225-3121. To find your representative in Congress, go to:

Lifetime will not use the information for any commercial or other purpose. However, Lifetime cannot be responsible for the use of this information by Congress.) I support the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act.
