    Lymphedema Voices: Sheryl #Project10000000Voices Lymphedema Is No Joke (Part 2)

    in Family

    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.  


    In Texas, we have 4 co-sponsors for the Lymphedema Treatment Act in Texas, and we have many more to go.  There are 4 bipartisan leads and 104 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.

  • Congressman Danny Davis Considers Presenting New Policing for Police and Prisons

    in Women

     Our Blogtalk radio family has worked together to create two pieces of legislation, one concerning Police and the other concerning Prisons. Today Congressman Danny Davis of the 7th District will listen to these suggestions and guide us through the process of how these ideas can be presented to Congress made into laws. The proposed legislation is as follows:


    Prisons: 1) Remove the objective to keep these as profit making ventures. Change the objective to one of eventually closing them all, "going out of business." 2) Make the objective to restore to wholeness those who have committed offenses against others, not punishment or vengeance for their crime. 3) Release everyone who is not jailed for a violent offence. 4) Release everyone incarcerated for drug trafficking or using drugs in which no weapons or acts of violence were involved. 5) Allow those who are in jail because they cannot pay a bond to be immediately released, if jailed for a non-violent offense. 6) Provide psychological evaluations and counseling services for violent offenders serving time in prison. 7) Provide education for those incarcerated, if they do not have a high school diploma. 8) Provide vocational training for those who are inside, preparing them for when they will be released. 9) Allow those serving long time or life sentences to serve the community by talking to errant youth in a "scared straight" program. 10) Expunge all records after the person has served time and been released, and do not require any reference or admission of committing a felony on an job applications.

    BETTER ASK DADDY - THE LATEST MOVE TO LIMIT ABORTION

    in Current Events

    A Missouri State Representative has proposed a bill that would require women to get a notarized signature (no forgeries, ladies!) from the father of the baby in order to get an abortion. Really- a permission slip!  And don't think you could wiggle your way out of the requirement for rape. A rape will only be exempted if it is a "legitimate" rape according to the representative.  His definition of legitimate?  It is reported to police and "proved." Otherwise, prepare to mother your attacker's child. And don't think domestic violence will excuse you from the proposed rules, either. the caring representative says that just because there is violence in the relationship doesn't mean the baby shouldn't be born.


    Well.


    Do you agree? Think this is reasonable legislation? Or are you outraged by this lattest attempt to chip away at abortion rights that have existed since the 1970's?


    Rev. Rebecca Turner, Executive Director of Faithaloud, join us to look at the Missouri legislation as well as other political attempts to change abortion rights.
