    Please Sign This Petition

    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
    times.
    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
    the
    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
    drive
    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
    women
    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

    Signed. {And was and -- I was sure this had been approved years ago. Take your eyes off of a politician! }
    I'm sometimes asked "Why do you spend so much of your time and money talking about kindness to animals when there is so much cruelty to men?" I answer: "I am working at the roots." -George T. Angell, reformer (1823-1909)

    I signed and forwarded the petition to three friends, one of them had a mastectomy a couple of years ago.

    I signed the petition. I try my best to be active in the fight against breast cancer. I participated in Avon's 3 day Breast Cander walk for the past two years and will be doing it again this year. There are other things you can do such as visit the Breast Cancer Site and click on their button to help provide mamograms for women. You can also buy stamps that are slightly more than the $0.37 ones. The proceeds go to BC research.

    KAK, thanks for sharing the link with us.
