www.pinkribbonprogram.com – Offering strength, self-esteem and quality of life to breast cancer survivors. Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery. You’re probably exhausted, your arm may be painful and swollen, and the adjuvant treatments can make you feel even worse. All you want to do is rest. In the past, that’s exactly what doctors recommended. However, recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise and improved quality of life for breast cancer survivors.
We are dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and positive body image to all breast cancer survivors. The Pink Ribbon Program will help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back, and abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery. This program is suitable whether your surgery was recent or several years ago and accommodates all fitness levels.
www.lymphedematreatmentact.org – The Lymphedema Diagnosis and Treatment Cost Saving Act will improve coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of lymphedema from any cause. Untreated lymphedema is progressive and leads to infection, disfigurement, disability and in some cases even death. Thus, prognosis for the patient is far worse and treatment more costly when the disease is not identified and treated in the earlier stages.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! We have no paid lobbyists; our cause is entirely grassroots and patient driven. Please explore the site to learn more, then complete as many of the simple steps under the “How You Can Help” menu as you can. The single most important thing you can do is take just a couple of minutes to contact your members of Congress using their simple submission form.
