No matter where you live, in whatever state or country, you need the California stem cell program to succeed.

Because chronic disease and disability affects you, or someone you love: not just COVID-19, but also cancer, of which my wife Gloria just died, or the  paralysis which afflicts my son, or heart disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, so much more.

Disease spreads rapidly—but so can cure. We need to solve the conditions which hurt our loved ones, not just maintain them in their misery, while we go broke with endlessly-expensive care.

Cure spreads—help it happen. Do you support stem cell research for therapies and cures? Do you want to do something that will really help?

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) is at a crossroads: it can either go forward with an additional $5.5 billion dollars—or it can die.

That choice is up to us. If you want to help, here is how.

Email the following to any California friends who support stem cell research. They can do it easily, with the following directions:

California Residents: Fill out your stem cell funding signature sheets, and postmark them by April 16th!

As you know, California stem cell research supporters are trying to get $5.5 billion in new funding for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).

But to do that, we need to get on the ballot. That means signature-gathering, from the safety of our own homes. We have about 915,000 signatures already, we need 35,000 more.

Here is how you can help, and it is much simpler than it sounds.

Please go to this URL:

Download the full document there.  It is long, 16 pages single space, but most of it is just background. You only have to fill out just a little bit.

We need your signature, and any others you may be able to provide.  Even if it is just your name alone, that is vital—we do not want to come up short!!!

To send the signatures, (you must send the full 16-page document) you will need a 9×12 envelope and 2 “forever” stamps. Get it in the mail ASAP, so it is postmarked by April 16th.

And that’s it!
