Support For Our Sisters In Need

Life Time TV is hosting this link to a petition letting our lawmakers know we want them to place into law the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2007. This would require hospitals/insurance companies to provide patients in-hospital care for 48 hours following mastectomy. Insurances want to make mastectomy an out patient procedure. Click on the link below to add your name to the gazillions of others who realize this is a no brainer and want quality care for woman on what is probably the worst day or their lives.

Great idea. Outpatient surgery of this magnitude is ridiculous.
