State Information for CCAM Proclamations

The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) has a goal of obtaining official proclamations in all 50 states by September 2017 for Childhood Cancer Awareness month. We’re excited to share we have 21 states confirmed and 3 pending, which is close to half way there! We’re hoping you will be able to help us reach our goal!

You are receiving this email because you have previously shown your support to the ACCO. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and are greatly appreciated! Now, we need your help contacting the Governor’s office in your state to help us reach this goal. ACCO, as a national organization, has contacted your state and they are looking forward to issuing the proclamation. However, the request has to come from a resident of that state. September is less than a month away so we need to act now!
If your state is listed below,  simply click on your state and you will be directed to the state’s proclamation page to submit your request.

Some states do not have a submission request form, in which case you will need to send an email directly. If your state is listed below, you will need to email your request to the email address provided.
Alabama: lori.davis@governor.alabama.gov
Massachusetts: constituent.services@state.ma.us
Michigan: tributes@michigan.gov
Mississippi: Debbie.carney@governor.ms.gov
South Dakota: kristie.houck@state.sd.us

We anticipate that this proclamation will be the start of an ongoing joint effort with the states to raise awareness about childhood cancer. Thank you in advance for your continued support of the American Childhood Cancer Organization!
