    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.

    4/14/2015 Community Paramedicine and Physicians Advisory Committee

    in Caregiving

    The Wisconsin EMS Live broadcast on Tuesday, April 14 is dedicated to Community Paramedicine and recent action by the Physicians Advisory Committee.


    The CommunityParamedicine conversation will run from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m.  Our guests include Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Buck McAlpin, PAAW President Patrick Ryan, and city of Milwaukee Fire Department’s Michael Wright.  All three are deeply involved in CP and building the infrastructure to deliver it the right way here in Wisconsin.  Like anything new or evolving some education and learning is required to move forward, and there will be many questions to ask and answer.


    Community Paramedicine programs have been evolving in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas.  An architect in Minnesota’s CP development is Buck McAlpin, director of government affairs for the Minnesota Ambulance Association and North Memorial Medical Transportation in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.  Given his experience in leading CP concepts in Minnesota, McAlpin’s knowledge and expertise is being sought nationally, to include by the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin.


    At 9:40 a.m. we’ll be joined by Dr. Suzanne Martens, Chair of the Physicians Advisory Committee.  Her group recently recommended use of nitrous oxide as an option to control pain management at the Advanced EMT level and higher.  Another recommendation is allowing one paramedic and one trained airway technician to perform a medication assisted advanced airway procedure that under current situations requires two paramedics.


    As always, the live show offers caller questions.  Make sure to listen live on your phone or any internet connected device on Tuesday, April 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time and lasting 60 minutes.

    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.

    Interview With Jeanine Finelli: Live: 646-716-7250:

    in Self Help

    Jeanine is a Certified Health Coach and 2008 graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC.


    She is the founder of Love Yourself to Health, and has a background in the pharmaceutical industry, which includes Sales and Marketing, and Assistant Project Management. She is currently a Health Coach, and works with executives and partners with various physicians who believe in offering a whole person approach to their patients.   Jeanine is a frequent guest on various radio shows, and she is also a published author with her first book titled Love Yourself to Health...with Gusto! -ABC Guide for Surviving a Toxic Relationship.


    Jeanine has such a deep appreciation for healthy relationships that support a life of love and self- nourishment. At the age of sixteen she was in a life threatening auto accident, and it was that tragic event that triggered an insatiable quest for wellness and wholeness inside and out.  She was only seventeen when she felt desperate to understand which foods fostered a landscape for healing and which ones didn’t.  Combine that with a decade long toxic relationship from which she emerged healthier than when she went in, and you get a gal who is deeply passionate about helping you to fall in love…with yourself!  Toxic people are just as derailing to your wellness as committing nutritional slaughter is.   Her inner travel bug has swept her away to her to sweet spots such as Bora Bora, Rio, Spain, Charleston, S.C. and the Big Apple.  Jeanine, a mom of two, loves the natural high that a Latitude Adjustment provides, and knows that everything tastes better when it feeds the soul too.    www.jeaninefinelli.com
