    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.

    in News

    The California Medical Association gave a major push to California’s Marijuana Organ Transplant Act when it supported ending the practice of removing patients from organ transplants due to their use of medicinal marijuana. Our first guest is one of the principle activists behind this act – Yami Bolanos. Denied a transplant because of her marijuana use, Yami fought back. Learn about her historic battle to secure the right to receive organ transplants for medical marijuana patients and what this historic legislation will do.

    REPEAT SHOW - Lymphedema Awareness HR4662

    in Legal

    I have done several shows about Lymphedema and the grassroots efforts to get the Lymphedema Treatment Bill passed.  This one came from an original airing of 5/1/10.  


    "Back in March, we had a show introducting you to the HR 4662 which involves the improvement for health care costs for lymphedema patients. Please join us again today to learn what has been done, what you can do, and what this means to you if you (or someone you know) has lymphedema. We need to get this bill passed in this year's legislation session. We will have Jennifer and Jenny on our show, as well as some other pertinent people that can add more to enlighten about this very important bill."   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory/2010/05/01/beyond-words-live--understanding-hb-4662


    BEYOND WORDS LIVE is designed as a platform for survivors to tell their own stories in their own words.

    Wardrobe Wednesdays is Back With a New Title, Vision and Content

    in Women

    Wardrobe Wednesdays will be airing again starting this Wednesday, January 28, 2015 @ 10:00am CST. Please join me this Wednesday when I tell you my story and how it relates to the new vision and mission for Wardrobe Wednesdays.  The show will still be providing you with great tips on the latest fashion tips and trends. I'll also be speaking on the topic of your health. Your health is your wealth and I've always known that but recently in October of 2012 I found out first hand what that really means after being diagnosed with metastatic stage 4-breast cancer. 


     


    I changed my mission in life as well as my diet. I look and feel great and want to share it with women (cancer patients and survivors) who are interested in taking care of themselves and improving their quality of life. While recuperating from surgery and treatment I found that there are 5 key areas in your life that can have a profound effect on feeling better and helping to keep your cancer cells shut off. 


     


    Each episode will have tips in one or more of the key areas so that you can swap out, add or delete habits that aren't getting you the results you want. So this Wednesday you can start just by taking action on the tip for that day.  You can choose to take baby steps or drastic changes depending on your personality. No one knows your body and personality and what works better than you do. I'll supply the weekly dose of healthful, food & fashion tips to look and feel better everyday.


    Looking forward to hearing from you next week.


    What are some of your most pressing questions on food & fashion that you would like me to address on future episodes of BTR?


    My Title is still a work in progress. Have any ideas? Submit your titles or questions at: gwenmarie@1791.com


    Thanks,

    Paranormal Kool-Aid presents "The Spirits Spook, Camarillo State Hospital"

    in Paranormal

    Paranormal Talk Radio


    Take a sip of the Kool-Aid! What's you'r flavor?


    There is a college campus in Los Angeles with a reputation of having once been a living hell on earth. The campus of the California Sate University, Channel Islands was once an institution named The Camarillo State Mental Hospital. It has been memorialized in movies like 1948's Olivia deHaviland picture "The Snake Pit" and in songs by Frank Zappa, the bands Fear and Ambrosia. It is even rumored to have been the basis for the Eagles megalithic chart topping hit; Hotel California. It once housed up to 7000 mentally ill patients and was a place where they did medical experiments on living people, without their permission and where for some doomed souls experienced abuse, neglect, rape, and torture were near daily occurrences.


    The location is closed now to paranormal investigations, but there has been a concentrated effort by a dedicated few to document the paranormal activity. Next week on an extraordinary Paranormal Kool Aid we are going to talk to historian/photographer Mary Holt. Then we will speak to many investigators including Paranormal Pioneer Syd Schultz who has dedicated himself to telling this fascinating, if horrifying story.


    You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.
