    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.

    The Photon Genie - Healing Frequencies for Cancer Patients & More

    in Health

    The Photon Genie is a revolutionary new electronic machine, distinct in that it is based on the concept that the bio-physics underlying the body's biochemistry plays a significant role in regulating all of life's health processes.  Electricity is found naturally in all of us. Certain electrical impulses in our bodies help facilitate bodily functions, including actions needed for health maintenance and healing. By mimicking the harmonic electrical impulses that occur in a perfect state of health, this machine helsp trigger these impulses with the harmonic frequencies, wave energy, broadcast intensity, and location of the energetic frequencies applied to the individual.


    Sounds fascinating doesn't it? I have invited Dr. Steven Davis on my show to talk more about this fascinating technology including:



    The science behind how the Photon Genie work.
    Why the Photon Genie so popular with cancer patients and how it helps those with conditions such as nerve damage heal
    What evidence is there that shows the Photon Genie really works? 


     


    Dr. Steven Davis D.C., CTN has been in healthcare since 1973. As a renowned alternative physician, his treatments range from nutraceuticals to energy medicine. He works with one of the leaders in quantum physics research in the world, and together they have found wonderful remedies that help even the most down and out patients heal.

    Finding Hope

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Dana Dornsife, President and Founder of an organization called Lazarex that helps people identify and participate in clinical trials that may be appropriate for their condition.


    Dana first became involved in cancer patient advocacy when her brother-in-law, Mike Miller, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003. Mike had three children, the youngest of whom was only four years old.


    Dana and her family searched for options for Mike that would buy the family some time and found a clinical trial treatment. Mike was treated successfully and lived long enough for his youngest daughter to have real memories of him.


    Since then, Dana has fought tirelessly for improved options for cancer patients who have been told there is no hope left.


    Lazarex Cancer Foundation was formed in 2006 to build a bridge to hope, dignity and life for cancer patients and their families. It provides financial assistance to defray the costs associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials. Additionally, it helps patients navigate their clinical trial options and provide community education and outreach services.


        - helps patients of all ages and walks of life, with all forms of cancer.
        - helps patients take advantage of medical breakthroughs today, because they may not have a tomorrow.
        - believes that the size of a patient's checkbook should not stand between them and the choices they make or the treatments they need.
        - provides resources to fill the gap that exists between when a patient is told there is no more hope and when they are truly done with their journey in life.
