Provide Accurate Breast Cancer Screenings for Servicewomen and Families!
Servicewomen and military families deserve the same preventative breast cancer care and treatment to which other women have access. Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. However, when detected at an early stage, chances of survival increase dramatically. Accurate and efficient preventative screenings are crucial. I am a mammographer and the wife of a veteran. I often hear how breast cancer is caught early because of 3D mammography -- and I know how critical it is that the military community has access to this life saving technology. According to an article in Society of Breast Imaging, “3D mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis, has been shown by many research studies to improve the results of mammography when compared to usual 2D digital mammography. If a woman chooses to have mammography, she should have the best possible outcome and that means 3D instead of 2D in almost all cases.” 3D Mammograms are covered by most major programs including Medicare. HOWEVER, under Tricare insurance, covering veterans, active military and dependent, it is NOT COVERED. Help me make this change for our veterans and military dependents. Sign now!
Petition to Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Health and Safety Protection From Mold At Workplace
Currently the long term health effects of mold exposure are not taken serious to enforce remediation and injury compensation enforcement at the workplace when employees complain of forced toxic mold exposure at the workplace and seek government protection and involvement. Currently employers would rather resort to retaliation and wrongful termination to whistleblowers and pass the buck to uncle sam (unemployment claims) and the victims life time health, quality of life and health cost consequences along to the victims , since there is no current government regulation. This happened to me, I now suffer mold illness ramifications, wrongful discharge and career defamation due to this loop hole. Please take a stand and sign this petition and put a stop to this injustice and make toxic mold mycotoxin exposure compliance accountability a priority and not a privilege. Empower the employee health and safety rights of millions of effected workers rights across the nation today!

Hudson Ridge Road to Recovery
We, the undersigned, hereby express our strong support for the approval of the Application of Hudson Ridge Wellness Center, Inc., to establish an upscale specialty hospital for the treatment of those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction on the 20+ acre property at 2016 Quaker Ridge Road in theTown of Cortlandt. As there is no other such facility in the Town of Westchester County, we believe the proposed hospital is absolutely necessary to serve a vital public need and that it will make an important contribution in thebattle against the ever-increasing opioid crisis which affects and threatens us all. We believe the Quaker Ridge location is an appropriate one for the hospital, as the Applicant will only be using existing buildings. Long used for such hospital and other institutional use and will be preserved over 40 acres of open space, while taking substantial measures to avoid any significant adverse impactson the environment or the neighborhood. We believe the proposed hospital will provide a significant benefit to the Town and surrounding communities. Therefore, we urge the Planning and Zoning Boards to consider what we believe is overwhelming support of the entire Town for such a hospital, not just the opinions of the vocal minority, and to approve the application without delay.

FDA Approval for Life-Saving NurOwn for ALS Patients
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease (MND) or Lou Gehrig's disease, is a specific disease that causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles. Some also use the term motor neuron disease for a group of conditions of which ALS is the most common. ALS is characterized by stiff muscles, muscle twitching, and gradually worsening weakness due to muscles decreasing in size. It may begin with weakness in the arms or legs, or with difficulty speaking or swallowing. About half of the people affected develop at least mild difficulties with thinking and behavior and most people experience pain. Most eventually lose the ability to walk, use their hands, speak, swallow, and breathe. ALS does not have to be a death sentence as patients are getting better with BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics stem cell driven therapy NurOwn which aims to help these nerve cells survive by fighting the neurodegeneration process that causes ALS symptoms. NurOwn uses MSCs harvested from the patient. MSCs are precursor cells that have the ability to differentiate into various cell types. NurOwn’s technology encourages MSCs to develop into cells that secrete neurotrophic factors (NTFs) that promote the growth of nervous tissue. NTFs can also help nerve cells survive through their own neuroprotective function. Below is a video of the amazing impact that NurOwn is having on ALS patients. Please sign this position to help get full FDA approval for NurOwn. To give people their lives back. Their futures back. Most importantly to give them a fighting chance at HOPE. Please share this petition on your social media and with family, friends, and co-workers. Thank you!

Endometriosis to become a disability
What is Endometriosis? One in 10 Women have it. A disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus.With endometriosis, the tissue can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or the intestines. A lot of people believe it has to do only when women are on their menstrual but this disease is with us everyday. If we are doing good one day we are recovering the following two weeks. It’s not just period pains like people have believe it to be it’s more than that. It causes fatigue so severe that causes us to get depressed. When we have the really bad flare up and you are not taken seriously by doctors is the worst feeling ever. It’s too much of a big toll in takes on us. It is known to cause other health problems such as Lupus, immunity, ovarian cancer, cysts , that’s just four conditions out of plenty. I can go on and on but I will never finish. We have some women that have the support of their significant other but others don’t and they have to work to support mainly their medical bills, family, etc... How can we work when we are having these really bad flares up? Endometriosis is just that a condition it’s a disease. Some support we have is with our Facebook support group. Which all we can do is Rant and get some relief that there is people out there that believe what kind of pain you are in. Today was a day I saw a post about one of our warriors committing suicide due to this condition. I believe that should be enough with this condition and we need to start getting help for it. Endometriosis should be considered a disability!!!!

Enable Shayna Kramer battling Chondrosarcoma, a rare cancer to participate in trial study
Hello everyone, I am starting this petition on behalf of the Kramer Family for their daughter Shayna Kramer. She is currently battling a extremely rare form of cancer called Chondrosarcoma. She is an extremely strong and resilient twenty-eight year old woman whom has been battling with this disease for over three years. I have known her and her kin for almost eight years and they are a second family to me and it pains me to no end to see the struggles that they have and are enduring. The Kramer Family is not in need of money or donations of any kind but, instead for anyone who can share and sign this petition to do so. Shayna has bounced back from setback after setback due to this cancer and has become a stronger individual each and every time. But, as of two weeks ago the unthinkable occurred. LESS THAN A MONTH after successfully completing radiation treatment for this horrific cancer, it reared its ugly head again. Shayna had to endure surgery to repair two holes in her bowel and had radiation to address the tumors in her brain. She was also on a respirator for a period of time but, thank goodness had been able to breathe on her own again. The glimmer of hope in this tragic situation is that there is an experimental study/treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York that could potentially provide a LIFE-SAVING treatment for her cancer. All the Center is required to do is utilize a tissue sample from her to test for a protein called ROR2. The awesome thing is they ALREADY HAVE A TISSUE SAMPLE FROM HER!!!! If her tissue sample tests positive for this gene she would be one step closer to qualifying for the treatment/study. Thus, Shayna would be looking at hopefully living a cancer-free and healthy life. On top of that amazing outcome, her participation in the study if successful would help many other individuals suffering from this deadly and extremely rare cancer!!!!! But, here is the dilemma - Shanya is required to provide consent in person. She has just undergone surgery to remove tumors from her brain and was just taken off of a respirator about week ago. On top of that, she resides in Maryland and due to her fragile state is in NO condition to make the journey to New York by ANY transportation means. Despite the doctors John Hopkins in Baltimore and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center appealing to the Sloan Kettering IRG: Internal Review Board TWICE, Shayna's request consent to the experimental treatment/study in writing, through legal proxy, or even Facetime/Videoteleconferencing have been DENIED!! What needs to happen to give Shayna a fighting chance is for her to be granted the permission to provide REMOTE CONSENT to the potentially life-saving testing to be conducted. If not that option, allow for her parents which have medical Power of Attorney to consent on her behalf. We would like to ensure that she does indeed possess the ROR2 protein before subjecting her to a grueling journey to New York with the delicate state that she is currently in. I hope that those who have taken the time to read this understand the urgency and importance of Shayna's situation. Please sign our petition in hopes of changing the minds of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Internal Review Board. I wholeheartedly believe that the experimental treatment, if she qualifies is the BEST hope at potentially providing Shanya with a Cancer-Free life. Thank you All in advance!!!

Eli Lilly & Big Pharma: Make Insulin Affordable
As a family, we have been managing Type 1 Diabetes since 2004. Having more than one family member diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes has been nothing short of a challenge. We have had to uproot our entire lives just to make sure that everyone can have the care they need. Insulin prices continue to skyrocket, and the generic insulin is still not affordable. These giant pharmaceutical companies have made enough money off of diabetics. Enough is enough. Let's all come together and be heard! Type 1's and allies, we need your signature! We need everyones signatures! Let's put an end to the constant threat to our financial stability. Sign and let's stop this madness! They've made enough profits on all of us for a lifetime. No More!
