★ Final Farewell To Mike Lopez Jr.★

It is hard to imagine anyone who followed football in Oregon in the 1980′s not remembering his name. It struck fear into many an opponent and his #19 was called and shouted often at Oregon State where he did some legendary things. He was one of the greatest athletes to every come out of Oregon and was an All American and named Gatorade Player Of The Year. The 1981 Graduate of Aloha was truly special in every way and was known by those closest to him as “Magic Mike”! ♥

Realtors raise $17K to aid ALS patients

Realtors raise $17K to aid ALS patients | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

Santa Fe Realtors were busy over the last few months hosting events to enhance the community while devoting many volunteer hours to raise funds for charity. In October, the Santa Fe Association of Realtors' Community Services Committee hosted the Third Annual Richard Jay ALS Research Benefit, raising more than $17,000. Melissa Pippin-Carson, Richard Jay Golf Tournament Committee co-chair and SFAR president-elect, noted that this year’s funds will go directly to the ALS New Mexico Chapter to purchase iPads and amplifiers to help patients with breathing, swallowing, and the ability to speak. The event was named in honor of Richard Jay, a local Realtor diagnosed with ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) who passed away in the fall of 2014.

Center for Medicare Advocacy Launches Home Health Access Initiative ​To Open Doors to Home Health Care

Center for Medicare Advocacy Launches Home Health Access Initiative ​To Open Doors to Home Health Care | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

Help open doors to necessary home health care.

As we have reported, the Center has been hearing more and more about people who meet Medicare criteria but cannot obtain, or retain, necessary home health care ordered by their physicians. In particular, people living with long-term and debilitating conditions such as ALS, MS, paralysis and Parkinson’s disease find themselves without necessary home care. For example, patients have been told that Medicare will only cover 1 to 5 hours per week of home health aide care, or only one bath per week, or that they must first decline before therapy can commence (or recommence). Individuals and their families are struggling as a result of these inappropriate limitations with too little care, or no care at all. 

To respond to this crisis, the Center is building a coalition to support a Home Health Access Initiative.  The Initiative will oppose inappropriate restrictions on Medicare to open doors to Medicare-covered, necessary home care...............

 

  • The Center for Medicare Advocacy, Inc., established in 1986, is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan law organization that provides education, advocacy and legal assistance to help older people and people with disabilities obtain fair access to Medicare and quality health care. The Center is headquartered in Connecticut and Washington, DC with offices throughout the country.
