Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill Help the one's we Love
Mastectomy Hospital Bill in Congress
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.

Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all
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.
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.
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. You need
not give more than your name and zip code number.
This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends and
family, and on behalf of all women, THANKS.
