Proposed Mastectomy Law Change
(written by a surgeon);
A mastectomy is when a woman's breast is removed in order to remove cancerous breast cells/tissue. If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards. Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.
This Mastectomy Bill is in Congress now. It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important.The Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill is important legislation for all women.There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which wills require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy.
Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition drive to show your support.

Thank you for the info, I will contact my reps. Breast Cancer is a big concern for me as my mother, grandmother, great aunt and aunt on my fathers side have all had it. I fear I am doomed but keep up with my exams and check-ups.
