    Lymphedema Voice & Activist: Leigh Elke

    in Health

    Leigh comes forth today talking about what brought her into the passion for the activism for lymphedema rights, what she has done with that time frame, and what her hopes are for the future.


    Leigh was diagnosed at 21 years old with lymphedema/lipedema, PCOS, fibromaylgia, Chronic fatigue syndrome high blood pressure, hypothyroidsm all on the same day. She had gained 230 pounds in one year. After reaching 500 pounds she had gastric bypass surgery, successfully losing 340 pounds in one year. After consulting with Dr Herbst in June 2014 for a "formal" diagnosis of stage 3 lipoedema she has undergone 3 surgeries for lipedema, all reimbursed by BCBS PPO. Additionally she has authorization for 6 total surgeries and 1 tummy apron removal. She is a disabled stay at home mother of 3, hoping to help others in the same situation with a non profit organization and insurance questions/answers.

    International/National Lymphedema Awareness Day - Open Mic Day

    in Health

    Dr. Stanley Rockson (of Stanford University Medical School) states that:  "Lymphedema is a common disease.  Approximately 10 million Americans, for example, have lymphedema secondary to breast and pelvic cancer therapy, recurrent infections, injuries, or vascular surgery." (2010)  Imagine, if there were approximately 10 million Americans then, how many more there are now in 2014 (knowing that there is no cure for it as it stands to date)?


    For many years, I had key advocates come on my show to discuss various cases and, especially, the aspects of advocating in the legislature.  On January 27th, Heather Ferguson (one of those advocates) will come on my show to discuss some updates on those legislative issues being presented.  


    Today, though, I will open the mic up to patients, advocates, and caregivers especially to tell their stories on how Lymphedema has affected them.  We will then share this with legislators to personally hear the many stories typical to illustrate the pervasiveness of this condition.  


    Please mark your calendars and join us on March 6th at 10a CST to share and/or be better informed about these issues.

    Lymphedema Voices: Sheryl #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Is No Joke

    in Health

    First time I talked to Sherly, she told me that she had once been a teacher but hasn't been able to work FT in decades.  She has had Lymphedema since in the early 90s.  She has difficulty fulfilling her life, difficulty in transportation.  She has no way of getting a compression garment (which can cost $500) without having to choose between a garment or paying rent because her income is just that stressed already.  Complicated by tumors (one removed and another that needs to removed).  She has written her Represenative but hasn't had a response just yet.  Hopefully, he'll get on board with the Lymphedema Treatment Act which will authorize Medicare to pay for the garment that helps to keep the lymphedema from getting worse, which causes so many other dominoing issues (like mobility, possible MS, and other diseases that stem from the damaged lymphatic systerm.  


    In Texas, we have 3 co-sponsors for the Lymphedema Treatment Act, and we have many more to go.  There are 4 bipartisan leads and 99 co-sponsors of the Lymphedemat Treatment Act across the United States.  We really need about 200 co-sponsors for this bill to be passed in the House.  We need your support to help the many Sheryl's out there with similar stories.  Please go to the http://lymphedematreatmentact.org website to sign up being a Team Member in your State and go to the "How You Can Help" and send your legislators personalize letters.


    Listen to the show that we had on November 20th as well for some other call to actions that you can do to help.

    The system hiccupped a bit and we didn't get to talk for the full time; however, we are back on this day with the rest of the story.


    First time I talked to Sherly, she told me that she had once been a teacher but hasn't been able to work FT in decades.  She has had Lymphedema since in the early 90s.  She has difficulty fulfilling her life, difficulty in transportation.  She has no way of getting a compression garment (which can cost $500) without having to choose between a garment or paying rent because her income is just that stressed already.  Complicated by tumors (one removed and another that needs to removed).  She has written her Represenative but hasn't had a response just yet.  Hopefully, he'll get on board with the Lymphedema Treatment Act which will authorize Medicare to pay for the garment that helps to keep the lymphedema from getting worse, which causes so many other dominoing issues (like mobility, possible MS, and other diseases that stem from the damaged lymphatic systerm.

    Kingdom Awareness "Identical Operation"

    in Spirituality

    Identical Operation


    Rev 22:18-21, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  20  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.  21  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen


    The body of Christ is supposed to operate as an extension of God’s kingdom. We are not supposed to be building or rebuilding, it’s already built. The Lord is very clear about how that extension is supposed to operate and what it supposed to demonstrate. We have incorporated so much into the word of God that it causes confusion among the believers. We have taken so much out that we fail to see the power it holds. Can’t the word of God speak for itself?  I think so.


    We include what we feel will fit us, what matches our agenda. We have taken Godly things and made them uncommon and have taken ungodly things and made them common. The world has influenced the church so much that what is ok for the world is ok with the church. Have we failed God and His word? Have we become more interested in pleasing people than pleasing God?


    The worldly church has been operating for so long that it has become common place among the church community.  Even the things that we call “church” are corrupted.  Then— we have the audacity to question and go against someone that is preaching the truth because it does not line up with the lie we have been taught, and preached for years.

    Kingdom Awareness Radio, "Stop Looking Back"

    in Spirituality

    There is a difference between having a spiritual wholeness naturally and a natural existence spiritually.  There is a spiritual and natural existence.  While the two can exist simultaneously, spirituality is supposed to take precedence over your past and your natural reality.  Your past or your present circumstance does not define your existence or your excellence.  The kingdom of God is a culture where the word of God prescribes, predestines, and precludes the state of your natural existence.   Your past does not define your future nor is your spiritually existence defined by your natural circumstance, positive or negative.  Call (310) 982-4267 at 6:30 tonight and every Thursday weekly to hear Kingdom Awareness Radio.  Kingdom citizens belong to and in God's kingdom.  Kingdom First, Kingdom Now, Kingdom Life!!!.
