Date:1/23/2008

- Unprecedented Show of Support for Bipartisan Legislation, The Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act, Championed by Senators Snowe (R-ME) and Landrieu (D-LA) and Representatives DeLauro (D-CT) and Moran (R-KS) - - Effort Part of Lifetime's Nonpartisan Every Woman Counts Election Year Campaign to Encourage Women to Speak Out on Issues That Matter Most -

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, at a Capitol Hill press conference, actress Marcia Cross joined Lifetime and Members of Congress from both parties to give voice to the 20 million signatures collected on myLifetime.com urging Congress to end the practice of "drive-through" mastectomies and pass the bipartisan Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2007, (S.459/H.R. 758). Cross stars in "Desperate Housewives" which airs on ABC and Lifetime Television. The bill -- championed by Senators Olympia J. Snowe (R-ME) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Representatives Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Jerry Moran (R-KS) -- would allow a woman and her doctor to decide if she is best off going home or staying in the hospital for at least 48 hours following physically and emotionally difficult breast cancer surgeries.

Also participating in the press conference were Dr. Kristen Zarfos, a Connecticut oncologist, and Lynn Bradley, a Maryland breast cancer survivor who signed Lifetime's petition because of her experience being sent home from the hospital less than 24 hours after having a double mastectomy.

The more than 20 million signatures gathered on myLifetime.com in support of ending "drive-through" mastectomies is part of Lifetime's nonpartisan Every Woman Counts campaign to engage its viewers in the political process and speak out on issues that matter most in their lives. According to a recent Lifetime/Zogby poll both health care and breast cancer were issues of great importance to women as they decide for whom to cast their votes.
