Petition to Arnel F. De Jesus
There are 52 weeks per year and at 3 hemodialysis sessions per week, that's a total of 156 sessions per year. Currently, Philhealth subsidizes 90 sessions per year. After which, the patient needs to fund his continuing sessions for the rest of the year. That's  about 184,000 pesos (66 additional sessions x 2,800 per). With all the additional medicinal requirements whicwhen followed costs over 25,000 pesos per month, paying for the hemodialysis sessions (ave 2,800 per session) is more than a middle class person can afford. More so for the indigent members of our community. Rather than just  government hospitals, we petition that all Philheath-accredited hospitals and dialysis centers be included and instead of free, limit it to 156 sessions per year which covers 3 sessions per week for 52 weeks.  Lastly, we petition that the erythropoietin injections be included in the coverage if possible as the price of the injection range from 650.00 to 2,200.00 and this is needed per session so 156 per year. We have designed a flyer which can be downloaded, printed, and posted on each of your dialysis centers so all the patients and their family and friends can signup too. http://www.shellarts.com/petition156.jpgRead more

Petition to Timothy J. McGinty
In Bay Village, Ohio, a group of high school students tricked their 14-year-old autistic classmate into doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Instead of filling the bucket with ice water they filled it with feces, urine, spit and cigarette butts and dumped the bucket from a roof onto the special needs teen.  This is a horrific act of degradation and violence.  It is so harmful and hurtful to that young man and his family and also to the people who know about this.  Not only did this group of people damage such a wonderful fundraiser, but they exploited it and this young man past the point of redemption.   This was so premeditated, that it is sickening. Thankfully, through the internet and social media, we can make others aware of this heinous crime, and hopefully put a stop to any (if not all) of these atrocities that are happening in our back yards to our family, friends and neighbors. But more importantly put a stop to and defend those who cannot defend themselves. These criminals have hit the heart of all that we hold dear.  Disabled children are often picked on and bullied.  But these people obviously set this young man up for something that not only could make him extremely ill, but has also humiliated humanity and those who just want to help.Read more

Petition to Department of Veterans Affairs
My Fellow Americans... I reach out to you today as a massage therapist and  Military family member. I've been practicing massage for 11 years now and my brother Lcpl. Jason A. Parker is a US Marine..both my Grandfathers are USAF..my Uncle Tim is Army..Uncle Joe RIP, was also a Marine. Our Armed Forces endure more physical and emotional stress than most of us could imagine. They would happily continue doing so quietly..because they were built for it. Their warrior spirits take on the burdens and trauma of the world..i ask you to help me secure medical coverage for massage therapy through the U.S. VA. They currently have ZERO coverage for this therapy. One of the most beneficial treatments for PTSD is massage therapy..not to mention, a lot of our Military come home in need of multiple surgeries..massage breaks down post surgical scar tissue..AND..the emotional scars that battle leaves on them. Thank you for your time..lets do right by our Military and demand the VA cover this benefit.Read more

Dear Insurance companies,   I am a birth rights advocate writing you on behalf of every pregnant and birthing person amongst this COVID-19 pandemic and always! Birthing at home with a midwife is NOT a luxury, it never has been, and it most certainly is not during this pandemic. With “stay at home” orders in place, and pregnant people being described as some of the most vulnerable, it is a necessity for healthy pregnant people to have medical insurance coverage to birth at home with midwives to reduce their exposure to COVID-19, which will soon be taking over hospitals. Hospitals will be running out of space, personnel will be limited and pregnant people will be forced to birth under less than healthy environments.  Hospitals are already limiting support people and also advising pregnant people to undergo unnecessary cesareans due to COVID-19. Not only is this completely unnecessary, it is unhealthy for the birther and baby. Many birthers during this pandemic want to switch from hospital birth to homebirth, as to minimize their exposure and maximize their health. But health insurance companies are not fully covering homebirths with midwives and it’s leaving parents and babies in predicaments they do not need to be in. Parents should not be forced to birth in a hospital where sick people congregate. Pregnancy is not an illness. It’s a normal function. You have the capability to cover homebirth midwives during this pandemic which means healthier parents, healthier babies, YOU save money, you keep hospitals helping people who really need the help, and you lessen the exposure of COVID-19 to parents and babies. Homebirths with a low-risk parent and baby are SAFE and reasonable, especially considering our circumstances. I have had a homebirth myself and can say that the care I received was impeccable and far cheaper than a hospital birth. I run a very large social media outlet with over 1 million people who are either pregnant, nursing, birth workers, parents, or learning about birth and options. PEOPLE WANT THE OPTION TO BIRTH AT HOME WITH INSURANCE COVERING THEIR MIDWIVES. Hospitals are now removing all support people from labor and delivery, forcing people to birth alone in hospitals, even without their partners.  If prisons are letting out non-violent offenders to minimize the spread of this virus, why are you not doing your part as well? If there was ever a time to insure homebirths, IT IS NOW!  Read more

Petition to Ole Miss Chancellor Dr. Daniel Jones and Dean of Students Dr. Thomas Reardon
Last week during a performance of "The Laramie Project" at Ole Miss -- a play describing the life, the brutal beating, and the death of Matthew Shepard -- audience members began booing, calling out anti-gay slurs, and harassing the actors, including myself. I was the only openly gay actor in the show and, every time I came on stage, I felt like I was being laughed at and taunted. Audience members even began making fun of some of the most important parts of the play. Those of us on stage were devastated by this display of anti-gay sentiment in the audience -- especially as we prepare to mark the 15th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s tragic death. But we refuse to let these taunts be the end of the story -- we are using this horrible experience to push for real, concrete change at Ole Miss. We want to see sexual orientation and gender identity added to Ole Miss’ non-discrimination policies so that no students, staff members, or faculty ever have to feel afraid of being harassed. We are calling on the administration of the University of Mississippi -- known as Ole Miss to most -- to rise to this occasion and to go beyond simple apologies and investigations. Ole Miss already has a non-discrimination policy in place that covers sexual orientation in faculty employment procedures -- which is a good first step, but clearly not enough to institute a more accepting university culture. We look forward to working with the Chancellor and the Dean of Students to review all university policies and overhaul them to include protections for both sexual orientation and gender identity.Read more
