Hello all:

As most of you already know, I am a Breast Cancer Survivor. Although, I did not have a radical mastectomy, but even with a lumpectomy, it was very painful to get in and out of a regular bed after surgery. Please support this petition to help the patients who have enough to deal with after their surgery.

Thank you and may all of you and your loved ones be speared from this disease and all other ones.

Important info for all women. Please forward this to everyone in your address book. This is a time when our voices and choices should be heard. This takes about 30 seconds to 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 y! our support. Last year over half the House signed on.
