I just received this e-mail from a friend and I thought that I'd post it here since there are a lot of women on this site. Please forward this to everyone in your address book.. If there was ever a
time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those
If you are receiving this it's because I think you are a loving,
caring, person who will take the 30 seconds to go and vote on this
issue...and send it on to others you know who will do the same.
There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will
require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for
patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the "drive-through
mastectomy" where women are forced to go home hours after surgery against
wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with
drainage tubes still attached.
Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition
to show your support. Last year over half the House signed on.
PLEASE!!!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below and help
living with breast cancer get the care they need and deserve!!
There is no cost or monetary pledge involved. You need not give more than
your name and zip code number.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THANKS
