    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.

    Where Is Your Faith ? Stand Strong and Trust God

    in Spirituality

    Scripture Text : Mark 5:25-43


    Key Verses Marl 5:25-29


    And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,


    And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,


    When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment.


    For she said, If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole.


    And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

    Where is Health Care going in the Next Few Years?

    in Current Events

    Healthcare is changing rapidly, no question there.  But we the consumers, myself a practitioner, and others who are involved in any aspect of healthcare; we are all worried about what is coming down the pike.  One year, your insurance is your best friend, next year, it is taking you to the bank.  While the government seems to have answers about healthcare and started to demand people have insurance, is that the answer?  What are the problems:  access, money, payments from third party, what should be paid for or not, who should be taken care of and how will this game of dice play out in the next few years?


    Steven Jacob, author of HealthCare in 2020:  Where uncertain reform, bad habits, too few Doctors and skyrocketing costs are taking us  and his other book So Long, Marcus Welby, M.D.:  How Today's health care is suffocating independent Physicians - and how some changed to thrive will be with us to share his work about all these topics.  Everyone seems to have different view on the problems and can offer up solutions but if you notice, it is generally in relationship to who it benefits.  Physicians think one way, payors another and patients another.  Can they ever come together and heal the landscape called HealthCare?  


    Today, we are continuing the conversation to see what sense we can make of it, funny though, we may talk about it and guess what, in a year or so, we might have another conversation with government changes.
