Stand for change Army Against Stillbirth

Every day in Australia 6 babies are dying. We do not see it, these deaths are hidden, these deaths are silent – these babies are stillborn. Stillbirth is not inevitable, rather it can often be prevented. Yet rates have not changed in 20 years. Stillbirth is 14 times more common than SIDS. Stillbirth is double the amount of national road toll. Stillbirth is the number one cause of death among infants in Australia. This is not ok – we want change. The Army Against Stillbirth is community standing united against stillbirth. A monthly silent vigil, a peaceful protest for change. The 6th of September 2017 marks the start of this silent protest Australia wide. The Australian Medical Association need to take action and make change. The government need to step in. Obstetricians, clinicians and antenatal carers need to step up. Stillbirth is the number 1 cause of death among infants in Australia and yet we shy away from talking about it. That is not ok. 6 babies every day, 42 babies every week, 182 babies every month, 2200 babies every year! It’s time to stand up for what’s right. These babies cannot speak for themselves so Still Aware are leading a silent vigil in their honour. A silent protest towards change. Everyone is invited to join the Army Against Stillbirth and proudly stand together and sign this petition for these babies, in hopes that this visual can help guide the change further. ____________ When Claire went to hospital after nine months of waiting, it was excitement and anticipation she felt at the thought of meeting her new baby girl. She had everything ready, the nursery was set up, tiny baby clothes ironed, soft toys carefully placed on the shelves, baby bath and massage oils, even the car seat was installed ready to bring her daughter home. The world came crashing down for the entire family with three little words “there’s no heartbeat”. Incomprehensible. Impossible. Nothing prepared her for what was next. She laboured for 24 hours, utter agony but no physical pain, she birthed her perfect little girl in deafening silence. Her daughter Alfie was stillborn. With no illness or abnormality, she was born, but without breath. The moments, hours, days and weeks that followed were filled with isolation and utter agony of what ifs. Why had no one told her stillbirth was a possibility? Had they, Alfie would be here. Claire knew her little girl so well and instinctively knew something didn’t feel right. Yet she wasn't given the tools to keep her baby safe. She didn’t know that 5 words, “my baby’s movements have changed” could have prevented those 3 painful words forever echoing in her mind, “there’s no heartbeat”. Was it a lack of communication that killed her baby? Don’t we deserve better? ________________ We are asking for: 1. Mandated policy2. Coronial Jurisdiction3. Access to information for all Please sign this petition and join the force driving change and raising awareness of stillbirth and preventable measures. Your signature can help save babies lives - 50% of stillbirths are preventable. Together, we can create change!

Frito-Lay Knee replacement and life restoration

My Husband Gary Alexander who worked for Frito lay suffered a torn meniscus in 2010, he had corrective surgery and was able to return to both work and being a happy husband and father. In 2014 it was torn again, This time unfortunately it failed.  I have watched my life drastically change before my eyes. He used to be proud to work for such a great company. He enjoyed his career he had with them, he looked forward every day to being a part of such a great team. Then little by little he changed. With the denial of FritoLays workers compensation insurance denying treatment he desperately wanted. He walks continuously with a limp, lives in unimaginable pain every single day. Because of this he started not being able to do his job and was given a light duty position. Gary being the man he is and loving the company started to slowly decline, he started being unable to attend soccer games, school dances, still he tracked on. Many more denials for a second surgery or even a second opinion started and continues to take its toll on the father of six and grandfather to two,but most of all my best friend. Gary slowly started not being able to do the things that brought him great joy as a man, a son and a father. He would often talk about times that his Grandfather, Uncle and Father took him hunting,fishing and camping as a boy often excited  our young sons who are the ages where they want to suck all of his knowledge of those things right out. Our boys were at the time 7and 14 and lived to follow Gary and listen to the stories he had to share about guiding in Alaska and often complaining of how thier four sisters smelled like nail polish and makeup. Our daughters were 15,16,17 and 20 they lived to hear thier dads shouts at basketball, volleyball marching band and track meets. Because of the extent of his injury Gary has had to make tough decisions like "will the boys and I go fishing or will I go to our daughters game"? Knowing that it would take every bit of energy he would have because he was unable to sleep most nights and was limited in the amount of things he could do in a day so to not aggravate his knee. I lived for the time when I saw my husband smile, laugh and enjoy his new life we had created being a mixed family. Two of the children were his from a previous marriage and four were mine. We married in April of 2011 and the adoption of my children made us a complete family. We were so happy, he had a wonderful job, I was a full time nursing student and the best of all we were a family. Now we have two Grandchildren two and almost a year old. Gary is limited at this point to maybe and hour or two a day of activity that does not involve a significant rest because of his knee. Because of the injury he is no longer working for Frito-Lay and was sent to vocational rehabilitation to learn a new trade. Although hard our family adjusted well. Till the  nights he would only get two or three hours of sleep a nite. In June of 2016 our granddaughters second birthday to be exact he and our now 15 year old son went to pick out a birthday present for her, it was then our lives changed even further. Because of the exhaustion and every treatment being denied by Sedgwick Gary had a grand mal seizure while driving with our son in the car. They hit a parked simi at over 100mph and moved it back 6feet. Our son (thank God )was okay,Gary was transported to our local hospital where they said that he would be life flighted to Portland Oregon to one of our states major hospitals for a bleed in his brain. While he was there it was decided that Gary had a cavornoma ( a benign tumor) in his brain that had now caused him to have epilepsy. The exhaustion caused it to come to fruition and would have to start a seizure medication. But I was grateful that they both lived!! We could handle everything else as long as they were okay. Gary continued to go to school all the time with a bad knee and another difficulty to life. He could no longer drive, hunt, fish or shower alone ever again. In January of 2017 a year we thought for sure that his knee would be fixed and he would finally be able to sleep!! we could deal with the little things. He was told he was too young for a replacement because they only last 25 years then the cushion would need replaced and only last another 25. January 29th 2017 Gary had his second Grand Mal seizure this time falling 30ft to the ground on his head. He spent 32 days in the icu as I desperately pleaded with God to shave years off my life in order to spare his. The lack of sleep, the unwillingness of Sedgwick to treat him at all sent him into full blown exhaustion again and had also been the cause of this seizure. Again now with none of his ribs left unbroken his spine from T12 to S1 being completely broken we pick up the pieces. Now Gary is even more limited in what he can do and how much time he can do it in. All I want is for my  best friend to be happy to be able to be the father and grand father that he is and has been back. My children and I desperately miss him. We miss fishing,camping,hunting.I miss date nights going to the movies or on a late nite summer drive to look at the stars. I know that they can replace the meniscus    and if they absolutely will not replace his knee. Please, please I am begging you with my entire heart and soul to fix him. All it's going to take is a final exhaustion at the wrong time and we will loose him.  My children and Grand children are begging you that while they are still young and impressionable with Gary being only 43 to help us. We loved Frito-Lay and Gary was a devoted employee and would have stayed with them till retirement had this not happened, but the workers comp insurance has been a nightmare and we need your help. Thank you for your time and we hope you sign our petition.                          The Alexander Family

Help FREE my Big Brother he is an Innocent Man!!

My Big Brother L'Ddaryl Ellis is in prison for a Murder he didn't commit. Prior to my brother being arrested Seven (7) other guys was accused of the same Murder, One out of the Seven guys named Devonte Swift according to court records was release from the Cuyahoga County Jail a few days prior to my brother being illegally arrested without a warrant in Mapel Heights on October 28, 2012. Five of the guys were still held in the Cuyahoga County Jail accused of the same Murder, One other guy was held in the Juvenile Jail on E. 93rd and Quincy by the name Rodric L. Burnett Jr. Four out of the Seven guys had already plead guilty to the Murder and the Juvenile as well had already plead guilty to the Murder. The Five that already plead guilty, plead guilty to a lesser included offense of Involuntary Manslaughter. The Juvenile according to court records Rodric L. Burnett Jr. plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter and received two years, Ab Tipton plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter and received 8 years, Jimeel D. Germany plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter and received 6 years, Devon R. Mittman plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter and received 8 years, Brennon Isom plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter and received 8 years as well. Daymond J. Haywood two months later plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter also and received 11 years in prison. Prior to my Brother going to Trial to receive Justice the 6 guys as stated above by them pleading guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter that is a admission of guilty. My Brother Trial started on March 6, 2013. On March 12, 2013 Judge Janet R. Burnside found my brother guilty to 7 counts out 14 counts of his indictment. Three out of the seven counts my brother was acquitted due to insufficient evidence was for a shooting on E. 89th street between Quincy Ave. and Woodland Ave. the counts was a discharge of a firearm, felonious assault the victim was Ab Tipton and another Felonious assault the victim was Jimeel D. Germany. The other four counts, three of them my brother was acquiited of and the fourth my brother was found not guilty to due to insufficient evidence that he was shooting at the victims Jimeel D. Germany the charge was felonious assault, Brennon Isom the charge was felonious assault, Daymond J. Haywood the charge was felonious assault and Devon R. Mittman the charge was felonious assault for the shooting on E. 95th street between Cedar Ave. and Qubec Ave. where a lady by the name of Elissa Hereford was standing in her window and was killed by a straight bullet that went threw the wood of her windom sasha. The seven counts my brother was found guilty to was to Murder, Involuntary Manslaughter, two counts of Felonious assault all on the victim Ms. Hereford, one count of discharge a firearm, Felonious assault the victim was Ab Tipton and a Aggravated riot charge. On April 12, 2013 my brother was sentenced to 21 years to life for the same murder the Six guys stated above had already plead guilty to. Which is impossible 7 guys couldn't have killed one person who got shot one time looking out of her window. My brother was railroad because he didn't have anything to tell the State/Police like the other guys did and he went to Trial. Ask yourself if there was insufficient evidence that my brother shot at the other four guys on E. 95th street who stated they were with Ab Tipton how was it sufficient evidence to say my brother was shooting at only Ab Tipton. That is because the Judge Janet R. Burnside was threating Ab Tipton while he was on the stand that she was going to bring additional charges against him if he basically wouldn't state to what they wanted to hear which he stated he didn't remember to what actually happen the day of the shooting. My Brother appealed his case to the Eighth Appellate District Court of Appeals and on January 16, 2014 the appeal court reversed and remanded my brother's case back to the Trial Court to vacate the theory of the State of Ohio case due to insufficient evidence. My Brother as of this day haven't been returned back to the Cuyahoga County Jail and as been waiting in the Trumbull Correctional Institution to be returned back to the Cuyahoga County Jail pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 2953.13 for the past fours years now. My Brother's Judge Janet R. Burnside have been committing crimes to illegally hold my brother hostage in prison by keep entering illegal void sentencing journal entries he's been re-sentenced three more times while he's never left the Trumbull Correctional Institution for any of the proceedings that was held the date's for the proceedings are April 07, 2014, March 04, 2016 and then again November 29, 2016. The Last Journal Entry Judge Janet R. Burnside entered to the public eye on her docket dated November 29, 2016 she stated that she was crediting my brother with another 393 days of Jail time credit for sitting in the Cuyahoga County Jail from October 30, 2015 until November 22, 2016 plus an additional three days for him sitting in the Municipal City Jail. Which is a crime the Judge have committed fraud, forgery and is not true my brother haven't left or been transported back to the Cuyahoga County Jail or any where since he was transported to the Trumbull Correctional Institution on August 02, 2013. While my brother has been in prison Family have hired two different private attorneys to obtain evidence that the State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County Prosecutors Office, the Cleveland Police Forensic Laboratory and the City of Cleveland have been withhelding from him that they had in there custody and control 6 months prior to my brother's arrest that will also show his innocents. The evidence that is being withheld is a Skky 9mm caliber pistol with serial #018313 and a SPL revolver as well as videos and other documents.The Office's as stated above either denied myself, my mother both private attorneys access to the records. The Skyy 9mm was never brung to the attention to my brother's two trial attorneys or himself, prior, during or even after his Trial. This is corruption that is going on in are State. My brother was employed prior to going to prison attending school as well as paying tax's to society. He also was living in the city of Lakewood, Ohio taking care of my two nephews whom he have been fighting day in and day out to get back home to. Everything stated above is according to court records. This can also happen to you. This is what is going on in are corrupt suppose to be Justice system in the "GREAT STATE OF OHIO". Anyone who reads this may you re-post this and go to www. Change.org and log into my brother's Petition and support him so he may be returned back to society and receive Justice! Thank you'll for you'll support in advance!!!!!

END ARRANGED MARRIAGE NOW!!! LETS SAVE THE FUTURE OF YOUNG GIRLS

Arranged marriage is a never ending rape.  You are raped by your family as well as the men you don't want in your life but imposed to you by your parents. There is always verbal, physical and sexual abuse involved. I was beaten up, spoken to harshly, manipulated,  forced, threatened , controlled,  demanded to marry a man of my family choice.  He was a friend of my uncle who was a Pastor. It was done under religious pretense using God as a person who sent them to abuse me to marry this men.  It is painful and very traumatic experience. This practice is commonly taking place in rural or poor communities. In poor villages and families young girls are a source of food, cars and betters lives.  Where a young girl cannot defend herself  I was forced to an arranged marriage  by my aunt and mom at age 17. My family was poor, very poor. He had promised to build my mom a house and by my aunt a car. I was sold basically. How does if feel to know that your family put you through so much just for things you were gon to buy for them anyway. They did not think I could become a doctor, they thought I can be a wife of a man I did not like, love and did not know.  I was abused and illtreated. I was treated like a slave. I use to cry every single day of my life. I ise to take pills to fall asleep.  The song that saved my life was Hero by Mariah Carey, I believe I can fly by R Kelly.  I escaped and went to school and medical school. I am a doctor now, I know better and see better. I believe your signature can save a life. I strongly believe this practice can be ended if we collect enough signatures and stand against the abuse of young rural , poor and illiterate young girls. I will be collecting signatures on line and in New York City in person .

May 1st Changes to Pap Smears

Dear Isabella and petition signers, My name is Doctor Michael Gannon. I’m the President of the Australian Medical Association, and a WA gynaecologist. I wanted to respond to your petition regarding the changes to pap smear testing to come into effect May 1, 2017. Myself and the AMA welcome the Federal Government’s changes to the HPV and cervical cancer screen testing. The changes adopt evidence based guidelines developed by senior gynaecologists across the country. I am confident the changes to the pap smear testing, and increasing the age of suggested testing to 25 years old, will not put young women at greater risk of contracting cervical cancer. While pap smears detect abnormal cell changes, the new test detects human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, the cause of almost all cervical cancer cases. The rare cases of cervical cancer that won't be detected by this test weren't detected by pap smears either. What is rarely mentioned is that the new testing will lead to tens of thousands of women avoiding the anxiety of an abnormal pap smear. It will lead to thousands of younger women avoiding (sometimes unnecessary) surgery to their cervix, so that they can then have safer pregnancies. What the changes don’t do is diminish the need to keep advocating for pap smears. I want to be clear that any woman, regardless of age, presenting to a doctor for a pap smear will never be turned away, and that it is always essential for women under 25 years of age experiencing abnormal bleeding to present to a doctor.
