Many of you know I’ve been fighting for an adaptive rowing machine called the Vitaglide for some time now with Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
I hit a dead end working directly with BCBS policy directors and I’m now introducing legislation with NC State Senator Jay Chaudhri in May. Very exciting!
In the meantime, I’m working closely with all of the folks at Vitaglide for promotion awareness of adapted exercise equipment for long-term wheelchair users.
They were so kind to write an article on me and all of the work I’m trying to accomplish with respect to health equity and not just health equality!
Every time I fail something, and I do fail quite a lot, or something stops dead in its tracks, I usually have 10 other things in the works.
Life can be utterly exhausting, but I know one person can make a difference even if it is only to inspire others to carry on the work they have started!
Thank you Vitaglide team for highlighting some of the work I am engaged in and spotlighting my consistent efforts for which I won Miss wheelchair North Carolina 2022 on — Health Insurance Advocacy! Nationals here I come in Grand Rapids Michigan from August 15th to August 21st!
