One out of 8 women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.
To put this phenomenon in perspective, walk down the street of a typical neighborhood and count out 8 dwellings. Residing in one of them will be a woman who will become stricken with breast cancer.
As the most common form of cancer in women, striking women of all ages, National Breast Cancer Awareness is the ideal time to bring this epidemic to the fore.
In his 2016 Presidential Proclamation, Barack Obama had this to say:
“During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we honor all those who lost their lives to breast cancer, and we recognize the courageous survivors who are still fighting for it. For these individuals, and for their loved ones who give their unwavering support during the most trying times, we recommit ourselves to the essential and necessary work of forging a future free from cancer in all its forms.”

According to Edwards-Tate: “At Your Home Familycare is among a select number of home care organizations in California which opted to complete a full license application. We wish to thank the DSS for recognizing us as a quality provider of non-medical in-home care which helps to keep seniors, disabled, developmentally disabled and Veterans safely and independently in their own homes. We anticipate announcing our full licensed status soon.”

The DRA Licensure Bill, AB 1863 (Jones), is set to be heard in the Senate Human Services Committee on June 24 at 1:30 PM in the State Capitol.

It is critical that we advocate our opposition to the amended version of this measure prior to the hearing. Please contact all members of the Senate Human Services Committee (listed below) and ask that they vote “NO” on AB 1863 unless it is further amended to include real consumer protections.
In addition to calling, please fax a letter of opposition on AB 1863 to your Senate Member’s office.

According to Laurie Edwards-Tate, President and CEO of At Your Home Familycare, “The home care industry in San Diego estimates that President Gloria’s proposal will be disastrous for private duty home care and supports. Additionally, I believe that all governmental funding sources we serve by caring for those most vulnerable with non-medical homecare, preventing costly institutional care, will be either impossible to provide, or necessitate severe cuts in programs and services.”

Call President Gloria’s office today and register your opposition by phoning (619) 236-7787.
