    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.

    Lympedema Voices #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Treatment Act 2014 Reflection

    in US Government

    In September 2014, a group of lymphedema advocates converged upon the Capitol Hill to talk to the US House of Represenatives and Senators about the Lymphedema Treatment Act, as well as had a Congressional Hearing to empasize the importance that it means to many lymphedema patients, caregivers, physicians, and more.  As a result, we ended up with 4 bipartisan lead sponsors from the House of Represenatives, and 91 cosponsors from many of the States.  We really need about 200 cosponsors to help ensure that this Bill passes the House.  


    Guidance was provided by the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, National Lymphedema Network, and many other supporters of the Bill.


    Join us on our Lymphedema Journey and Advocacy for a discussion on a reflection of those this year's journey at Capitol Hill (DC) and a call of action that we would like for you to do as soon as possible.

    Caregivers, Want To Increase Your Peace & Happiness? Dr. Todd Fisher Interview

    in Caregiving

    Dr. Todd learned at the age of 28 that he had most of the traits of attention deficit disorder (ADD) and then later a type of dyslexia. Finally, he thought, there was a reason for his thoughts and actions over the years! Since then, he discovered what works for him, and so he helped many others to harness their own gifts. He found what worked to increase brain performance and how to increase productivity. He practiced as a psychotherapist and consultant for over 10 years and today he is committed to practicing as a consultant and executive coach assisting entrepreneurs, leaders, and companies to increase performance and happiness. This formula also works very well with caregivers to increase their happiness. Contact him at www.DrToddFisher.com


    Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, author of numerous articles and books, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout. It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST. If they don't learn this, they will likely suffer burnout and become as helpless as the person they are caring for. Tune in every Wednesday at noon, PST, (Re-Broadcast Saturdays at 3:30pm PST) for interviews with experts in the caregiving field, as they discuss topics of great interest to caregivers, which will help them avoid burnout. www.DaveTheCaregiversCaregiver.com

    No Protection from Life

    in Christianity

    God told Abraham that He was his shield. David cried, "Lord, You are my shield!" Paul encouraged us to take up the "shield of faith." The presence of a shield indicated the need for protection. Yeah, that's right - life is going to throw a lot of stuff our way, caregiver or not. It's all about being protected through the storm - not preventing it altogether.
