From Mitzie...

My friend Mitzie is our regional rep for the American Cancer Society (she lost her Mom, Pat Tucker, 14 months ago). Mitzie sent this to me--please read.

One of the issues I went to Austin on, smoke free Texas workplace (HB 670 & SB355) has been scheduled to go to committee hearings this week, in both the house & senate which is great!!! They really moved fast on this, Yea!!! Would you mind sending out & email to our friends, MOPS moms or any others you think would help by sending the attached letter to their state rep or senator asking them to follow through on this bill? This is not so much about taking away peoples rights to smoke in public workplaces but more of a health issue of lowering the high rate of cancers that are now coming about due to secondhand smoke, as well as heart disease, low birthweights in babies all have seen a huge rise due to second hand smoke!


If you don't mind i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your help, let me know if you have any questions. --MB

Correction...I misspoke. Mis-wrote? :) Anyway, Mitzie is a volunteer for the ACS, not a paid regional rep. Either way, I think it's amazing that she's standing up for what she believes in! :)
