Mastectomy Hospital Bill in Congress<br><br>
If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards. Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.<br><br>
Mastectomy Bill in Congress<br><br>
It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important...please take the time and do it really quick!<br><br>
Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all women.<br><br>
Please send 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're receiving this, it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote on this issue and send it on to others you know who will do the same.<br><br>
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 just a few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You need not give more than your name and zip code number.<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends and family, and on behalf of all women, THANKS.<br><br>
PS...........This can strike men as well
