    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 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.

    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.

    Kingdom Awareness "Conscious Disobedience"

    in Spirituality

    Conscious Disobedience


    1Jo 5:6, “This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.


    The bible instructs us to seek the truth, yet when we find the truth few believe that it is in fact truth—even though they can read it for themselves.  I have often wondered why so few words can be so easily misunderstood and those who form no opinion about God’s word are persecuted when they find it.  Well it is because of the nature of truth.  What do I mean, “The nature of Truth”, you ask?   First… the nature of truth has no opinion.  Secondly…the nature of truth is not subject to interpretation, and thirdly… the nature of truth is not tolerant.  This means that truth is absolute.  Truth has limits and is endless.  The limit is that there is a period, but lasts forever—Just like Christ.  Truth goes against the nature of reality and thought, because both are subjective.  As kingdom citizens we are not.  


    Relative and natural thought has and will only seek out self-preservation, while truth operates regardless of how things look or how we think or feel.  Truth—being the only absolute— will reject any argument that has opinion or poses questions to anything that gives no true meaning of defining right or wrong or a beginning and an end that last forever.  Emotional experiences are subject to the way we feel, thus can be void of truth.  Void because if God’s will is dependent on our feelings, that would make him subject to us and not us to him.  Please join us to understand what the Church (You) look like without an opinion and what one looks like with one.  Call (310)982-4267 at 6:30pm EST.
