Hi Friends! I was thrilled when my sister, Heather Ferguson, invited me to be her 'plus one' for the Love the Lymphedema Treatment Act Valentines Walk 2017!! Thank you for visiting my page!
As many of you know, I adore my twin nephews more than words can express, and I love them extra-extra-special because of how the entire Ferguson family has worked together to tackle Dylan's diagnosis of Primary Congenital Lymphadema as a team! Lymphedema can be scary because we know there is no cure (yet!), but the passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act (LTA) will ensure that patients receive the care they need until that day comes. Can you imagine that Dylan's private insurance used a loophole to repeatedly deny coverage for his treatment!?! My sister took Dylan's fight for coverage all the way to the North Carolina legislature and a state mandate was enacted ensuring coverage for lympadema patients in North Carolina. Now, there is a national bill - The Lymphadema Treatment Act - that would help patients all over the U.S.
I'll be walking solo in Boston (I'll be there for work), and I ask you to support my efforts in one of two ways! The first method costs nothing but a few minutes of your time. Please visit http://lymphedematreatmentact.org/ and send an email to congress urging them to pass the LTA! This is cost-neutral, life-saving legislation! If you want to show further support, you can sponsor me for a few dollars as I walk to achieve my goal of raising $50 to support the 3-5 million Americans living with Lymphedema.
