Hello all! It has been a very long time since I have posted, although I do periodically check in to read what is new. Today I am posting because about a week ago I stumbled upon an article to support the Breast Cancer Patient Act. This is a petition that will head to our US government leaders asking them to pass an act allowing people who have undergone a mastectomy to stay in the hospital 48 hours rather than 24 hours. Help stop "drive through" mastectomies. I have included the link where you can read the article as well as the letter to our leaders and you can sign the petition online. Every signature counts and is needed. Thanks everyone! Keep fighting the fight!
