Being An Advocate For Health Related Ailments Which Affect You
[ March 29th 2016 12:43 am ]
While I was out grocery shopping this evening another customer (spoke to me. Often children speak up. This time it was an adult. She spoke to me about how well I drove my power wheelchair, hip replacement surgery and some of the issues happening in our health care that affect me. I've made this video to encourage those who are affected by health ailments to be an advocate and give a human face to what it is your facing. I realize not everyone is going to be comfortable doing this. Being a face will help raise awareness and support as cutbacks occur to health care and social assistance. I think of this like a grass roots cause: That people understand the effects of decisions that are being made and may join us in the fight for treatment options and resources needed to improve our quality of life.
