Hello everyone! I am just bloggin to let you know I will be attending the LIVESTRONG Summit this weekend! I hope to blog each day to keep you informed. There are several training sessions I will be attending and also a town hall meeting with John McCain. We hope to bring cancer to the forfront of the minds of policy makers and elected officials. The cost of ignoring the issues is far higher than addressing them. Keep us in your prayers as we convein for the best interest of cancer patients and survivors. Hope to update you Thursday night! :-) go to the website and see what LIVESTRONG is all about, if you don't already know! :-)

The Lance Armstrong Foundation site notes this about the summit:

2008 LIVESTRONG Summit

Join community leaders who care about cancer issues at the 2008 LIVESTRONG Summit. The LIVESTRONG Summit will take place July 24-27, 2008, at the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, Ohio. Through an application process, the Lance Armstrong Foundation will identify 1,000 current and potential leaders who are willing to champion the cause in their communities.

The Lance Armstrong Foundation looks forward to bringing together 1,000 current and potential leaders who care about cancer issues and are willing to champion the cause in their communities at the 2008 LIVESTRONG Summit.

The LIVESTRONG Summit will take place July 24-27 at The Ohio State University campus in Columbus, Ohio, and includes the LIVESTRONG Presidential Town Hall on Cancer on July 24.

Delegates identified through an application process will be inspired by renowned keynote speakers and empowered through hands-on training sessions.

chronic pain, cancer and hope

chronic pain, cancer and hope

I know with the DEA's war on doctors it has been hard to maintain a doctor who will care for chronic pain patients, as they often get nervous if they have to write narcotic medication, citing the DEA's regulation of how much they are allowed to prescribe and how other local honest and caring doctors have lost their license for messing up. Then they have to refer you to another doctor, while the DEA watches patients also for "seeking" activities, which include, changing doctors often. So, how can we get through these hoops and maintain a consistency in our medical treatment without being forced to find something online or being forced out of treatment or worse? They actually could push patients into having to decide to hunt down meds from others or commit suicide from the pain. A patient could decide the chance of jail is worth it rather than dying and putting their loving family through that trauma. It is sad that that actually happens. A good resource for help is the pain relief network. If you google them, I believe they show up first. They really support patients and are not a front for a pharmaceutical company. I was pushed to a near point of suicidal thoughts and such after an ER visit went bad and they sent me home without addressing my pain seriously and treated me like a criminal because I felt like I was burning alive from my neuropathic pain due to toxicity from chemotherapy treatment I received about a year ago or so. I now suffer from multiple diagnosis that all exasperate pain. It is hard to get around and then to have to go to a doctor monthly just to see the doc and have a script wrote, when a lot of pain could be avoided if I had less appointments where I spend hours in a chair that pains me. (My conditions really require me to be in a recliner basically most of the day.) Between the pain docs, oncologists, specialists, labs, emg's, ct scans, x-rays, and so on, I really think it would help if appointments just to have scripts wrote would only happen like once every three months. It is very draining to endure so many appointments so often. It leaves any energy and abilities I would have for the week to enjoy time with my family, spent for hours on end in a painful position in a hard chair. I am however, greatful for any and all medical care I do get. Don't get me wrong. It is just a double-edged sword. If you have any advice on how patients could get this burdon eased, I know many people who would benefit from it. Thank you and I hope you have a blessed weekend!

Global Warming Science and Public Policy - Proved: There is no climate crisis

Global Warming Science and Public Policy - Proved: There is no climate crisis: "Proved: There is no climate crisis Print
Written by Robert Ferguson

WASHINGTON (7-15-08) - Mathematical proof that there is no “climate crisis” appears today in a major, peer-reviewed paper in Physics and Society, a learned journal of the 10,000-strong American Physical Society, SPPI reports.
Christopher Monckton, who once advised Margaret Thatcher, demonstrates via 30 equations that computer models used by the UN’s climate panel (IPCC) were pre-programmed with overstated values for the three variables whose product is “climate sensitivity” (temperature increase in response to greenhouse-gas increase), resulting in a 500-2000% overstatement of CO2’s effect on temperature in the IPCC’s latest climate assessment report, published in 2007.

Climate Sensitivity Reconsidered [] demonstrates that later this century a doubling of the concentration of CO2 compared with pre-industrial levels will increase global mean surface temperature not by the 6 °F predicted by the IPCC but, harmlessly, by little more than 1 °F. Lord Monckton concludes –

“… Perhaps real-world climate sensitivity is very much below the IPCC’s estimates."



The video for you:

This is a must watch video. Watch it all for information on what can be done and please do not just sit back and watch, get involved. Our great country needs you!

my comment:

"Stand for something or fall for everything! Mock what you do not understand. I am sure I have myself. We have to research for ourselves, not just push a button based on what category we most likely fit in. There is so much to what Ron Paul is saying. He has references, data and resources to back up what he has to say. It is not just political propaganda. If you begin to research Ron Paul and the revolution, you will begin to see there is a vast amount of information on all the sites supporting what his platform is and the issues he brings up. With such extensive information for you to research, you will understand he cares about America as much as we do and wants to make things work and to begin the process to fix what is broken and to restore our freedoms - including medical issues and ending the drug war, which is limiting patients ability to maintain a continuum of health care. You have to research Ron Paul, then come back and state your argument against him if you still think you have one. Otherwise, do not impose prejudice against Ron Paul supporters just because they believe different than you. That is quite hypocritical isn't it. Take care out there. ;-)"
