    dear (your decision maker)

    On thursday december 8th, 2005 at 10 a.m. in Rayburn HOB 2123 there wiil be an importent hearing about pain in America. This issue is vitally importent to me. As one of over 50 million people affected by pain in America, I urge you or one of your staff members to attend this hearing.

    I can tell you from experience that there are numerous barriers to getting effective pain care. It is time for investment in pain care research and time to address all of the policy abd system barriers that prevent good pain care. This heraing will set the stage for for addressing this serious public health problem.

    I am counting on you or your staff to attend this hearing and support H.R. 1020, The national pain care Act. Please let people in our state and across the nation that you care about their pain( And that of their loved ones and others in our community) and are invested in addressing this critical healthcare issue.
