Funds for families that have children with cancer.
Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer a year. Their parents are the people who stick by their side day in and day out. We have to watch our child suffer and waste away. On top of that, Almost all of us are going through it with little to no help at all. Many parents go without meals, Showers, and are away from our families for months to years at a time. We are begging everyone for help to keep our lights on. To keep a roof over our heads. And, it all depends on how many kind friends we have on social media. My daughter has stage 4 brain cancer. We are doing everything we can to stay afloat while caring for our daughter in treatments. The costs of treatments alone is enough to completely sink a family into debt. I am just asking for our Government to set aside a little bit of funds to ease the burden from families like mine. So many of these parents are having to worry about even more. They have to figure out how to pay for burial and funeral costs after they just lost the most precious thing in their lives. It is too much on so many families. I know most that most people will never have to deal with this. But, Alot of families do. Whether it is in the form of a grant or a loan.. Please do something to ease the burden off of these families. We will not give up. We cant give up for our children. We are all they have. Please, Lets make a difference. Lets get our voices heard. #NaomiStrong #WeareFAMily
Petition to Food and Drug Administration
Make insulin affordable for all diabetics
As a type 1 diabetic, injecting insulin is a necessary and indispensable process that I undergo numerous times a day. I personally use about two 300-unit pens each and every week. Each insulin pen costs upwards to more than $100. Without an insurance plan, this means that I would have to pay almost $1000 each month just for insulin. Insulin has been easier and cheaper to produce than ever before thanks to new and improved medical technology and research, but every year, insulin prices has only climbed higher and higher. Some diabetics simply cannot afford to pay for that price. Because of this outrageous price, many diabetics have been forced to illegally smuggle in insulin from outside the United States or buy unauthorized or under-the-counter insulin. Some diabetics have even lost their lives due to insufficient insulin. Just as no two humans are exactly the same, insulin needs vary from person to person. Everyone needs carbohydrates, even diabetics. Diabetics should not be punished by paying such a high price for medicine that they use to stay alive. With a reduced and more manageable price on insulin, wealthier diabetics won’t have to unnecessarily spend about a new phone’s worth of money each month and less wealthier diabetics won’t have to lose their lives.
Petition to Ohio Department of Medicaid, Ohio Governor
Patient's Right To Choose Their Pharmacy
Thank you for choosing a locally owned, independent pharmacy as your pharmacy. We value your right to choose your pharmacy and know that having the right to choose your pharmacy is important to you, too. Independent Pharmacies are closing at a significant rate in the State of Ohio. The primary reason is poor reimbursement for Ohio Department of Medicaid Prescriptions. In many situations, your pharmacy is being paid less to dispense your prescriptions than it costs the pharmacy to buy and dispense the medications! As a result, 177 pharmacies have closed in the state of Ohio in the last 2 years. Most are independent pharmacies, but CVS and Walgreen’s have also closed locations. We do not want you to lose the opportunity to choose your pharmacy, and we want to continue to serve you and your family. We are asking you to consider two things:___________________________________________________________________1. Sign a petition which will be sent to The Ohio Department of Medicaid and the Ohio Governor’s Office requesting fair reimbursement for Ohio Managed Medicaid Prescriptions 2. Consider writing a brief sentence or two explaining why your pharmacy is important to you and how your life would change if we were not here to serve you. If you are willing to do so, please ask your pharmacist for the appropriate form.___________________________________________________________________We believe your words and your vote will make a difference.Thank you for taking the time to help your pharmacy!

FDA: Please expedite NUROWN Treatment for ALS Patients
My husband David is suffering from ALS - or Motor Neuron Disease. There is no cure and currently no effective treatment to slow down the progression of this horrific disease which destroys the body's neurons leaving the patient trapped in a lifeless body. We have a young family of three daughters and we cannot lose Dave without a fight! There is a treatment called NurOwn that is at stage 3 of clinical trials - it is the first ALS treatment that is showing decent results. Some people who have been in the studies have reported impressive improvements in their health and muscle function. With this stem-cell treatment, fathers, husbands and sons like Dave have a real shot at living longer with their families. We call on President Donald Trump and the FDA to make this treatment available to everyone by expediting the clinical trials process. Stage 3 means it has passed tests that make it safe for humans - we are wasting valuable time having to wait for the stage 3 trials to be completed. Please sign our petition - if every ALS sufferer had this chance so many lives could be extended to make memories with their families. Thank you. Please follow our story on Facebook at Live Fast, Take Chances. Also, we have set-up a Go Fund Me to help our family with the enormous, crippling costs that ALS brings. We would appreciate any help no matter how small! Thank you all so much! https://www.gofundme.com/f/live-fast-take-chances-for-david-keeble

Pass comprehensive mental health legislation now!
Hi, We are a group of high school students who are committed to solving the mental health issues of today through awareness and policy. The mental health crisis is one of the most prevalent issues facing the American population today, not only the youth. In fact, 1 in 5 American adults experience some form of mental illness each year (National Alliance on Mental Illness), while only 41% receive proper treatment (Mental Health First Aid). This is unacceptable, and we demand action now. We need our elected leaders to step up and take the charge to fight for mental health equality. From a lack of parity enforcement to ghost insurance networks, it is too hard for many to get the help they desperately need. Our petition focuses on the prioritization of mental health reform in Congress. For example, bills such as H.R.1109 (Mental Health Services for Students Act of 2019), which was introduced in February 2019, has been held up in the House without a vote. By prioritizing mental health legislation to the same extent as climate change, physical healthcare, and the economy, we can finally get action done. This initiative isn’t about pushing a specific piece of legislation or political ideology. What we are trying to do is get the country and more importantly politicians in Washington to stop referring to mental health as just a talking point and start to take real, substantial action on the mental health crisis.

Transforming Treatable Tragedies.
Help us end the neglect of those with untreated serious mental illness. The time is now to change laws in our broken mental
health care system. How many more tragedies must we tolerate ?
Many lives have been lost and families destroyed, because of this brain disease or mental illness . Science and research has proven that with treatment the illness is treatable, and this prevents tragedy. Because of the complexity of this brain disease many who suffer from this illness lack insight of their illness and are able to refuse treatment and this intensifies their psychotic symptoms and usually brings upon dier consequence and sometimes even death . Parents who know their loved ones history, are being excluded in the treatment and medication plan due to privacy laws . Families are unable to get treatment and long term residential care for our loved ones., Our jails have become flooded with our sick loved ones and are not receiving treatment. Our communities have become unsafe, all because our mental health system is broken. Our nation is experiencing a crisis. We as families affected have come together to support any legislative efforts that address this issue and will not cease until we have achieved an awareness and put a stop to the madness. ..join us, share with others and share your story as others have.

Petition to U.S Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service
STOP the USDA from changing the nutritional standards for school breakfast and lunches.
The U.S Department of Agriculture has proposed to change the now stricter nutritional standards that are now in place. The USDA proposes to allow schools to cut the amount of fruits and vegetables in schools breakfast and lunches, and instead provide more pizzas, potatoes, burgers and fries to students. Many students rely on their school lunches as the only nutritional meal they can get for the day. Especially children that come from households that receive food stamps. It is just not right to deny our children a nutritional meal at school. Feeding them more burgers, pizza and fries will lead to health problems and obesity. Further straining our Healthcare system, that is not providing proper care to children from low income Families. We, as the richest and most advanced country in the world should lead by example buy providing the best care for our children. That includes nutritional school lunches for all children. Currently, school lunches have improved and it just doesn't make any sense to take a step back. Our children just deserve better! Please support this petition with your signature! Protect our children!
