Please sign this petition!

http://www.lifetimetv.com/breastcancer/petition/signpetition..php

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 our support. Last year over half the House signed on. PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the Web site babove. You need not give more than your name and zip code number.

  1. I signed it - signed it four years ago also. The website said they have been trying to get this passed for 12 years - dayumm, call me cynical; but exactly how much power do the insurance lobbyists have anyway?
