Cuomo’s Justice Center Hoax

Gov. Andrew Cuomo must be indicted and prosecuted for the State and federal crimes likened to war crimes

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is concealing evidence of crimes against the disabled

These crimes against children are similar in scope and horror to that of war crime atrocities.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2018 / — “Thousands of sexual assaults of children and women with disabilities continue to be reported to Cuomo’s Justice Center and almost all are kept from 911 call systems, local police, County District Attorney’s and from criminal prosecution. Gov. Cuomo has ignored the New York Times Editorial board, as well as civil and disability rights advocates calls for 911 immediate reporting and surveillance cameras to finally end decades of discrimination and to ensure the protection of our most vulnerable.” – Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Justice Center abuse hotline is ensuring the cover-ups of almost all reported sexual assaults, rapes and deaths. The wide-scale obstruction of justice is off the charts and many State officials are involved. You just do not conceal this level of State and federal crimes without many powerful people and parties being complicit or actively involved in attempting to protect the governor. The root of the cover-ups is massive Medicaid fraud and gross misappropriation of State and federal Medicaid funds.

Federal law has certain very clear directives where the billions of Medicaid dollars are to go and be used for which are; safe programs that are free from abuse and neglect, programs free from human rights violations and programs free from financial and sexual exploitation. Countless extremely dangerous facilities known by Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Justice Center are allowed to investigate sex crimes and deaths occurring within their own facilities. Only local police, county prosecutors and medical examiners are supposed to be investigating and ensuring the prosecution of these horrific crimes.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s corrupt abuse hotline and agency is not independent and it has no oversight. Cuomo’s agency has been getting away with protecting numerous Larry Nassar’s, sexual predators and pedophiles that prey on vulnerable children. Enough is enough, the truth must be told and this evil must be stopped. These crimes against children are similar in scope and horror to that of war crime atrocities.

UN urged to Ensure the Safety of Tamil Mothers of the Disappeared after they Return to Sri Lanka from UNHRC: TGTE

Tamil Mothers of the Disappered

Several Sri Lankan security force officers and Military Intelligence threatened and abused the Mothers. One mother fainted and admitted to Geneva Hospital

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, July 6, 2018 / —

An urgent appeal was made to the President of UN Human Rights Council H.E. Ambassador Vojislav Šuc, to take steps to ensure the safety of six Tamil Mothers of the disappeared when they return to Sri Lanka after giving statements at the current UN Human Rights Council session. These mothers were threatened and abused by Sri Lankan Security force officers and military intelligence at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). Names of the six mothers are attached in the bottom.

These Mothers are appealing UNHRC for help to find their children who disappeared in Sri Lanka and other thousands of Tamils who disappeared over the years. Several of the disappeared were surrendered by their families to the Sri Lankan security forces nine years ago at the end of the war. There are credible reports that around 18 thousand Tamils have disappeared over the years. So far, not a single military officer has been brought to justice for these disappearances.

This appeal was made by Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam’s (TGTE) United Nations Representative Mr.Suginthan Murugiah.

Six mothers of the disappeared are visiting the current UNHRC session in Geneva and are speaking at various Council forums appealing to member states to secure the release of their loved ones and around 18 thousand Tamils who disappeared or for information on the circumstances of their death. The families have collectively formed a group to search for their loved ones.

During the presentations by the Mothers of the Disappeared at the UNHRC side events, several current and former Sri Lankan security force officers and Sri Lankan Military Intelligence officers rudely interrupted their presentations and abused them by loudly shouting and using harsh and threatening words. As a result of the threats, the Mothers are severely traumatized and frightened. One of the mothers fainted at the UNHRC and was admitted to a Geneva hospital. These Sri Lankan forces also continually followed these mothers at UNHRC building and threatened them.

In a desperate move to find their loved ones, these mothers, along with thousands of other families, have been continuously holding hunger strikes, vigils and protests for the last one and a half years. They met the President of Sri Lanka, who promised to get the list of those surrendered to the Security forces nine years ago and who have not been heard from since. The President, however, did not fulfill his promise. The Mothers also met the Office of Missing Persons (OMP), but they too have not delivered on their promises.

As a last resort these mothers have come to the UNHRC to Appeal for urgent action. Here they have been harassed and abused by the current and former Sri Lankan Security forces and Military Intelligence officers.

“Imagine, if they face these abuses at the UNHRC what their plight will be when they return to Sri Lanka” said the TGTE.

“We urge the UN to ensure that these mothers who came to UN to appeal to for help to their loved ones are not harassed, arrested, abused or attacked by the Sri Lankan forces and military intelligence when they return to Sri Lanka. Any protection should also include their families, as previously their family members have also been harassed and attacked by Sri Lankan security forces and Military Intelligence.”

“We urge the President of the Council to request the Sri Lankan Government to ensure the safety of these six mothers of the disappeared and their families”

“The UNHRC, the premier human body of the UN, must ensure that victims who come to the Council are not harassed, abused or threatened while at the Council and their safety must be guaranteed when they return to their home countries”,” concludes the appeal.

The names of the six Mothers of the Disappeared who need protection are:

1) SEBESTIAN DEVI of Trincomale, Sri Lanka.
2) MARIYASURES EASWARY of Mullitivu, Sri Lanka.
3) VALLIPURAM AMALANAYAKI of Batticalow, Sri Lanka.
4) YOGARAJAH KANAGARANGINI of Kilinochi, Sri Lanka.
5) ANANDA NADARAJAH LEELADEVI of Kilinochi, Sri Lanka.
6) THAMBYRAJAH SELVARANI of Ampari, Sri Lanka.

CCHR Calls for Ban on the Use of Electroshock on Children in Florida

Call to ban the use of ECT on children in Florida.

We are asking Florida Legislators to join other states in this country that have already enacted laws prohibiting the use of electroshock treatment in children.

CCHR Calls for Ban on the Use of Electroshock on Children in Florida

CCHR Florida

CCHR Florida is a mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is calling for a ban on the use of ECT on children altogether due to its harmful effects and unproven science.

We are asking Florida Legislators to join other states in this country that have already enacted laws prohibiting the use of electroshock treatment in children.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 5, 2018 / — In a report on the recent annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in New York, the increased use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) on autistic children has been promoted in the Psychiatry Advisor by Editor Laura Stiles.[1]

In contrast, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, is calling for a ban on the use of ECT on children and has distributed model legislation prohibiting the administration of ECT on children altogether due to its harmful effects and unproven science.

According to the FDA, harmful effects of ECT can include cardiovascular complications, cognition and memory impairment, dental/oral trauma such as dental fractures, dislocations, and lacerations, physical trauma, seizures, skin burns, or death.

As part of a campaign to educate families and lawmakers on this issue, the international headquarters for CCHR filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with every state and in doing so learned that in one state alone that electroshock is being used on children as young as 0-5 years old. This alarming fact prompted CCHR to start a petition to stop the proposed expanded use of the electroshock device on children.

“We are asking Florida Legislators to join other states in this country that have already enacted laws prohibiting the use of ECT in children at various ages, from under the age of 12 to under the age of 16,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “This new push by the APA to shock autistic children looks like a ploy to use autism to justify the use of this brutal treatment on those with no defense.”

Citing the fact that the World Health Organization advised in 2005 that, “There are no indications for the use of ECT on minors, and hence this should be prohibited through legislation”, the Florida Chapter of CCHR has launched a parallel petition demanding the ban of ECT while asking lawmakers to introduce legislation in the next session that will protect Florida’s children.[2]

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit,

Pets of the Homeless Celebrates Ten Years as National Nonprofit Organization

Celebrating 10 Years

Pets of the Homeless’ mission is to feed and provide basic veterinary care to pets of homeless people in the United States and Canada.

Open House and Expansion in the Name of The Patricia Sharon Trust

CARSON CITY, NV, UNITED STATES, July 2, 2018 / — (Carson City, Nev.) – 2018 marks the ten-year anniversary for Pets of the Homeless, the only national nonprofit organization focused on feeding and providing care to pets of homeless people. In celebration of this milestone anniversary, Pets of the Homeless will be hosting an open house on July 27, from noon-6 p.m. at its headquarters in Carson City, located at 400 West King Street.

The open house will also be a celebration of the expansion of the Pets of the Homeless office space, and will be commemorated in the name of The Patricia Sharon Trust, who named Pets of the Homeless in her estate allowing for the expansion to occur.

Genevieve Frederick founded Pets of the Homeless in 2006 to offer animals the food their owners could not provide. The organization garnered nonprofit status in 2008. Pets of the Homeless is a volunteer-based organization, with a simple mission – to feed and provide wellness clinics and emergency veterinary care to pets of homeless people in the United States and Canada.

Homelessness is still an issue even as the economy brightens. 3.5 million Americans are homeless. Between 5 and 10 percent of homeless people have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country, the rate is as high as 24 percent. Despite improvements in the economy, homelessness continues to be a reality for many people. The need for pet food and veterinary care will continue to be a pressing concern for those who find themselves homeless and the pets that rely on them. Pets are non-judgmental, and provide comfort and an emotional bond of loyalty to their owners. In some cases, they provide the homeless with protection and keep them warm.

Since 2008, Pets of the Homeless’ donation site members have taken over 569 tons* of pet food and supplies to homeless shelters, food banks and soup kitchens in nearly every state and some in Canada. More than $778,000 has been provided for veterinary emergency care and wellness clinic services to over 18,000 pets.
As an outreach to the homeless who own pets, Pets of the Homeless uses cash donations to provide veterinary care to pets of the homeless at free wellness clinics as well as emergency veterinary care across the country.

For more information about the organization, visit Please call (775) 841-7463 or email to RSVP for the open house. To donate to the organization, visit

About Pets of the Homeless:
Pets of the Homeless believes in the healing power of companion pets and of the human-animal bond, which is very important in the lives of many homeless. They find solace, protection and companionship through their pets. They care for their pets on limited resources so they themselves have less. The task, nationwide, is to feed and provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets and thus relieve the anguish and anxiety of the homeless who cannot provide for their pets.

Home Care Expert Explains Ways to Communicate with Dementia Patients Easily

Comfort Keepers Philadelphia, PA..

Philadelphia Caregivers

Michele Berman of Comfort Keepers of Philadelphia, an award-winning home care agency, gives tips on how to communicate with those who suffer from dementia.

Dementia is a multi-natured disease that affects millions all over the world. Dementia also can diminish a person’s communication skills.”

— Michele Berman, Owner

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Dementia is a multi-natured disease that affects millions all over the world. Dementia embodies a group of symptoms that affect memory, thinking, and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily life and functioning.

Problems with Dementia begin with at least two different brain functions, such as memory loss and impaired judgment. This could also include the inability to perform daily activities such as cooking or paying bills. Dementia also can diminish a person’s communication skills gradually.

Difficulty with Communication: Look for Clues

When looking for changes in communication skills, look for ones that are aligned with the symptoms of Dementia. Examples of symptoms of Dementia are:
-Use familiar words often
-Inventing new words to describe everyday things
-Losing train of thought often
-Reverting to a native language
-Having difficulty organizing concepts in a logical way
-Speaking less often

Communication During the Different Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia:

What to Expect:
In the mild and early stages of Dementia, an individual is still able to engage in daily dialogue, deep conversations, and social activities. However, the person may unknowingly repeat stories, have difficulty finding the correct word, or feel overwhelmed by excessive verbal stimulation.

The middle stage is usually the longest and can last for several years. As the disease progresses, the person will have greater difficulty communicating and will require a lot of direct care.

The severe stage can last several weeks to several months. As the disease advances, the person may rely on nonverbal communication. This could be through eye contact or body language. Around-the-clock care is usually required at this juncture.

The Best Ways to Communicate:
Dealing with Dementia is a struggle. People that have Dementia usually have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions than a person without Dementia.

Here are some ways on how to help you be successful in communicating with Dementia Patients:

Before You Speak:
-Stay composed. Take a moment to calm yourself before engaging in a conversation.
-Remain focused. Consider what you are going to talk about and stick to that topic. Try always to be positive. Show your positivity in your voice and body language.
-Be the primary focus. Make sure you grab the person’s full attention, and that they can see you clearly. Try to maintain consistent eye contact and remain at their eye level.
-Minimize distractions. Turn off the TV or radio to reduce background noise.
-Match your body language to your words. Make sure that your body language/facial expressions match with what you are saying.
-Never stand too close. Instead, respect the person’s personal space, for this could be intimidating. Allow the person to feel as though they are in control of the situation.
-Use physical contact. Show that you care by holding the individual’s hand or putting your arm around him or her.

How to Speak Correctly:
-Make sure you Speak calmly and clearly. Be aware of how fast you are talking and your clarity in words. Be sure to use a gentle and relaxed tone. A lower pitch is better to use since it is seen as more calming.
-Speak at a slower pace (slightly). Allow time in between sentences for the person to process the information and to respond at their own pace.
-Include the person in conversations with others. This will reduce feelings of exclusion and isolation.
-Avoid confusing and vague statements. If you tell the person to “hop in the shower,” he or she may take your instructions literally. Describe the action in a more direct way to make your directions more clear: “Please come here. Your shower is ready.” Instead of using unclear antecedents such as “it” or “that,” name the object or place directly. Rather than “Here it is,” say “Your coat is right here.”
-Repeat questions or information as necessary. If the person does not respond quickly, wait a moment for them to think. Then ask the person one more time.
-Turn your questions into answers. Provide the patient with the solution rather than an open question. For example, say “Your lunch is right here,” instead of asking, “Are you ready for your lunch?”
-Turn negative things into positive things. Instead of saying, “Don’t go there,” say, “Let’s go here.”
-Try to laugh with them about mistakes and confusions. Humor and fun can bring you closer together with the person and relieve any tensions.

What to Say to the Patient:
-Clearly Identify Yourself. Advance the conversation from a frontal view and maintain good eye contact.
-Call the person by name. It helps keep the person in reality and grabs their attention.
-Use short, simple words and sentences. Lengthy stories or requests can be overwhelming.
-Offer a guess. If the person can’t find the correct word to use or uses the wrong word, try helping them guess the right one.
-Avoid asking too many direct questions. People with dementia often become frustrated if they can’t find the answer. If you have to, ask questions, ask only one question at a time and put them in a way that allows for only a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
-Try not to ask the person to make difficult decisions. Try always to give the person a choice. Too many options can be frustrating.
-Avoid criticizing or correcting. Don’t discourage the person’s effort by telling them that they are incorrect. Instead, try to understand what they are trying to say, and encourage him or her to always correspond their thoughts.
-Avoid arguing. If the person says something you don’t necessarily agree with, try to let it go. Fighting makes things worse. It will also heighten the level of agitation for the person dealing with dementia.

How to Listen:
-Always try to Listen attentively to what the person is trying to communicate.
-Try to be caring and supportive. The person may need more time to process thoughts in conversation. Let the person know you are listening to them.
-Pay attention to hints. If the individual has difficulty finding the right word to use or finishing a sentence, maybe ask them to try to finish it in a different way.
-Remain sympathetic while listening. If the individual is feeling unhappy, let them express their feelings without dismissing them right away. This will show that how much you care.
-After listening, get confirmation. When you have not fully understood what they are saying, tell the person what you have comprehended and make sure you are correct. You may have to repeat yourself to clarify.
-Always use the best judgment. Some people will not remember personal things, such as medical history, family, or friends. You will need to and act appropriately in these situations. For example, they may say that they have just showered when you know they haven’t yet.

Always Keep Corresponding, and Be Respectful:
Remember to always treat a Dementia patient with respect and dignity. Don’t talk about them as if they are not there, or speak to them as you would to a young child. Remaining patient is crucial.

Always offer them ongoing comfort and reassurance, too. If he or she is having trouble communicating, let the person know that it is alright. Try to give support to the person to continue to explain his or her thoughts, no matter what.

Comfort Keepers provides exceptional dementia care and many other services for you or your loved one. Our caregivers are locally based and well trained to help any situation. To contact one of our caregivers call (877) 698-9394.

You Can Sue Your Employer if They Don't Have Workers' Compensation Insurance

Both PA and NJ are no-fault states for workers’ compensation. Attorney Craig A. Altman outlines PA and NJ workers' compensation law.

If you work for an uninsured employer, you are allowed to file a lawsuit against them.”

— Craig A. Altman

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Employers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are required to have workers’ compensation insurance. Those requirements don’t necessarily make it so in all cases. If you get injured on the job and find out your employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance that will compensate you for your medical bills and lost wages during recuperation, you may be able to sue the company.

In New Jersey, failure to carry insurance is actually a disorderly person’s offense. If you’ve suffered an injury while working in Philadelphia, PA, Cherry Hill, NJ, or any surrounding counties, talk with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer at the Law Firm of Craig A. Altman who can determine if you have a lawsuit and, if so, will help you file suit against your employer.


Under NJ and PA workers’ compensation law, you are typically not allowed to sue your employer for negligence. This is because no-fault coverage works both ways. You are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits regardless of your own culpability in the accident that caused your injuries. The flip side of this is that in exchange for your employer providing you with coverage for injuries caused on the job, you agree not to sue your employer for negligence — regardless of whether the injuries were permanent or temporary.

As a result of the nature of workers’ compensation law in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, workers’ comp is usually the only option available for injured workers. If you work for an uninsured employer, you are allowed to file a lawsuit against them. Additionally, there are a few other exceptions to the “no-fault” law prohibiting employees from suing employers when they are injured. These include:

Intentional Acts – Although workers’ comp generally prohibits you from filing a negligence claim against your employer, there is an exception if your employer intentionally caused your injury. For example, you may be able to sue your employer if they removed safety guards on heavy machinery. This small exception exists for public policy reasons; employers must make every effort to keep workers safe on the job.

Products Liability – Another major exception exists when an employee is injured due to a defective product. In a products liability case, an injured worker may be entitled to compensation far beyond workers’ compensation benefits.

“Off the Job” Accidents – Additionally, if you were not “on the job” when you suffered your injury, you may be able to sue your employer in a civil action. Sometimes employers argue that the employee was not covered by workers’ compensation because he or she was hurt while driving to work. However, this may expose the employer to third-party liability for negligence.

Sexual Harassment and Defamation Cases – You can also potentially sue your employer in sexual harassment and defamation cases.

Retaliation – You may also sue your employer if they fire you for filing a workers’ comp claim. This is because workers’ compensation law explicitly protects employees against retaliation for filing claims.


If you’ve been injured while working for an employer who failed to provide workmans’ comp insurance coverage, you can still potentially receive compensation through the New Jersey Uninsured Employer’s Fund (UEF). The UEF provides temporary disability benefits and medical expenses to workers injured on the job. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you explore your options and navigate this complicated process.


Although workers’ compensation typically prevents you from suing your employer, you may have a personal injury claim against a third party, such as a manufacturer, property owner, or subcontractor. Importantly, you can potentially seek compensation for pain and suffering through claims against third parties, which means that the compensation may be greater. You may have a viable claim against a third party in certain instances:

Defective products – You may have a products liability claim against the manufacturer of a defective product that caused your injury.

Slip & Fall accidents – If the accident was caused by a negligent property owner, you might have a valid premises liability claim.

Motor vehicle accidents – If you were injured by a negligent motorist while driving to or from your place of employment, you may have a valid claim against the negligent driver.

Violent assaults – In some circumstances, you may be able to sue a co-worker who assaulted you if the assault stemmed from a personal matter.


The experienced personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of Craig A. Altman are here for you. We’ve been fighting for the rights of injured workers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for many years. We focus a large part of our practice on workers’ compensation and personal injury law, so we know how to maximize your potential recovery. If you’ve been injured while working, contact one of our skilled attorneys today, or use our online contact form to schedule an appointment.

Malpractice Lawyer Outlines What to do if Your Breast Cancer is Misdiagnosed

Alvin F. de Levie & Associates - Personal Injury Attorneys

Alvin F. de Levie & Associates

The misdiagnosis of a serious illness can bring great consequences. Attorney Alvin de Levie outlines what to do if you experience a breast cancer misdiagnosis.

Unfortunately, despite growing awareness, many medical providers fail to properly diagnose breast cancer. More than 90,000 women have received breast cancer misdiagnoses.”

— Alvin de Levie, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Breast cancer is a serious problem in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2014 (the most recent numbers available), almost 237,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States and over 41,000 of those women died from breast cancer. We have all seen the pink ribbons from organizations like the Susan G. Komen Foundation on bumper-stickers and t-shirts to raise awareness of breast cancer. Efforts that spread awareness of breast cancer are important, as the American Cancer Society notes those who begin receiving breast cancer treatment early have the highest survival rates.

Unfortunately, despite growing awareness in both the medical community and among the public, many medical providers fail to properly diagnose breast cancer. In this instance, it's important to hire a medical malpractice lawyer. According to a study of breast cancer survivors performed by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, more than 90,000 women received incorrect breast cancer diagnoses. Sometimes, a doctor may misread the patient’s symptoms and diagnose the patient with another medical problem, resulting in a misdiagnosis of breast cancer. Other times, the doctor may miss the symptoms entirely and incorrectly give the patient a clean bill of health, resulting in a failure to diagnose breast cancer. Because early intervention is so important to increase a breast cancer victim’s chances of survival, the failure to make a prompt and proper diagnosis wastes valuable time during which cancer can spread.

What Are The Symptoms Of Breast Cancer?

Symptoms of breast cancer vary from person to person. According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, symptoms of breast cancer include:

-Skin changes, such as redness, swelling or noticeable differences in one or both breasts;
-An unexplained increase in size or shape of the breast;
-Nipple discharges (not including breast milk);
-Pain in or on any part of the breast;
-Lumps or nodes that can be felt on or inside of the breast;
-Changes in the appearance of one or both nipples (such as inverted nipples or swollen nipples).

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America also notes several symptoms of more invasive stages of breast cancer, including:

-Change in breast color;
-Peeling or flaking of the skin around the nipple;
-A breast lump or thickening of the breast; and
-Irritated or itchy breasts.

According to the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, women should get yearly mammograms starting at age 40 to detect early signs of breast cancer. Regardless of whether you have reached the age where annual screening is recommended, the American Cancer Society recommends that all women of any age be vigilant and report any changes in how their breasts look or feel to their health care provider immediately.

What Kinds Of Failures Lead To A Misdiagnosis Of Breast Cancer?

There are many kinds of negligence that leads either the misdiagnosis of breast cancer or the complete failure to diagnose breast cancer, including:

Breakdowns in Communication Between Doctor and Patient: Women with a family history of breast cancer are often are a higher risk than those without such a history. Medical providers sometimes fail to obtain a proper and thorough medical history that includes whether any relatives have been diagnosed with breast cancer. This can make a medical provider less diligent in examining the client for symptoms of breast cancer. Medical providers may also fail to follow up with their clients when they do report potential symptoms of breast cancer to ensure additional symptoms have not developed.

Breakdowns in Communication Between Medical Providers: The diagnosis and management of breast cancer often involves a chain of many different medical providers. Your doctor, radiologists, specialists and outside testing facilities all need to work as a team to ensure the proper screening and tests are performed and that the results of those tests get to the right medical providers in time. A breakdown in communication between these providers can result in several errors that can lead to misdiagnosis, such as failing to order the right test or a failure to promptly report adverse findings.

Incorrect Readings and interpretations of Diagnostic Tests: Many times, a misdiagnosis may be due to the simple fact the radiologist or doctor misreads diagnostic tests. The medical provider may miss a lump or node that appears on a mammogram or ultrasound and incorrectly tell the patient there is nothing to worry about. Other times, the medical provider reviewing the test results may interpret the results incorrectly, leading the provider to incorrectly decide that what is in fact breast cancer is merely inflammation or another kind of medical problem.

In either case, these failures prevent breast cancer from being discovered early and rob patients of their ability to increase their chance of survival by recognizing and treating their breast cancer early.

What Should I Do If My Doctor Has Misdiagnosed Breast Cancer?

First, you should seek treatment immediately. The key to surviving breast cancer is often early intervention. Seeking the proper treatment immediately after you suspect or are diagnosed with breast cancer greatly increases survival rates.

Second, contact an experienced attorney. DO NOT DELAY! Misdiagnosed breast cancer is generally due to medical malpractice or medical negligence. There is a Statute of Limitations in Pennsylvania that generally requires any medical malpractice lawsuit to be started within two (2) years of the medical malpractice or medical negligence which has caused your injuries. If you do not bring a lawsuit within the applicable two-year period, any claim that you may have will be forever barred. There are certain situations where the Statute of Limitations will be extended, but determining whether your case meet the requirements for an extension is extremely complicated. You will need an experienced attorney to review your case to see if it qualifies.

Like all medical malpractice cases, cases of misdiagnosed breast cancer are often much more complicated than other kinds of personal injury cases. Your attorney will often have to gather thousands of pages of medical records and have them reviewed by experts to determine whether the provider that misdiagnosed your cancer is guilty of medical malpractice or medical negligence. You need an experienced attorney with access to the right experts who can review the facts of your case to determine what kinds of claims you may make. Second, medical malpractice cases are often high-stakes cases that are heavily litigated and notoriously expensive. You need an attorney with the resources and perseverance to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.

At the Law Office of Alvin F. de Levie, Esq., our team has years of experience handling complex cases for those who have suffered from medical malpractice and medical negligence. If you or a loved one have suffered injury due to misdiagnosed breast cancer, please call our firm– 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – at 844-777-2529 (Toll-Free) for a consultation.

A meeting with The Honorable Charles Peter Mayiga, Prime Minister (Katikiro) of the Buganda Kingdom, solidified an ongoing arrangement with Wells of Life to provide water wells for villagers in the Kingdom of Buganda, the largest traditional kingdom in present day Uganda.

During the trip, Wells of Life advisory board member and businessman Rand Sperry arranged for a surprise wedding engagement gift for his daughter, model Keleigh Sperry to actor Miles Teller (Fantastic Four, War Dogs, Bleed for This). Over 400 children and parents gathered at a primary school to celebrate the presentation of the well by performing a play and a special song written for Keleigh.

Other developments from the trip included the Prime Minister’s acceptance as an advisory board member of the Wells of Life board of directors. Upon the appointment he said, “We welcome the timely intervention to combat many health challenges in Uganda resulting from a shortage of clean water.”

To date, Wells of Life has funded and drilled 376 water wells. The focus for the last two years was in the Mubende and Mitiyana districts of Uganda. Each well provides clean water to 1000 villagers for up to 25 years and organizers aim to fund 1,000 water wells over a ten year period.

Wells of Life founder and executive director Nick Jordan and Keleigh Sperry gave emotional testimonies during the meeting with the Prime Minister while Sperry also agreed to become a Wells of Life Ambassador.

Wells of Life is based on the premise that water is a basic human right and clean water saves lives. Water wells also relieve the tremendous daily burden on women and girls to collect water.

The meeting also solidified the purchase of land for a Wells of Life Training and Visitor Center. Coordinated by Wells of Life Advisory Board Member Fr. Max Ssekiwala, as non-residents cannot purchase land in Uganda, the arrangement includes a 99-year lease with Wells of Life deemed beneficiary of the two-acre site.

New Innovative Donation Platform Aims to Change How Political Campaigns Are Funded

GroundUp’s donation platform allows individuals to shift the tide of the national political landscape by donating spare change from cashless purchases

GroundUp takes away the doubt by identifying races with the biggest impact and uses these micro donations collectively to make meaningful contributions to these candidates”

— GroundUp CEO Jeremy Gottlieb

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 28, 2018 / — A growing number of Americans are searching for ways to change the direction of the country after the 2016 elections gave Republicans control of Congress and Donald Trump control of the White House.

Today’s social media feeds are filled with outrage from people who can’t fathom the human rights injustices happening daily in this country. The separation of children from their families as they seek refuge on U.S soil is the latest in a string of actions that continue to erode national patience and attack the foundation of America.

These and other issues are energizing young Americans who want to make a difference and are the fuel behind a new safe, quick, and easy way to make that change possible.

GroundUp is a new digital platform that allows users to donate their spare change from the everyday cashless purchases they make to Democrats in key congressional races throughout the United States. The innovative system automatically rounds up the purchases you make every day on coffee, gas, groceries and more to the nearest dollar and then donates that change to the Democratic candidates that support the issues important to you.

“A lot of people would donate to political campaigns, but are either unsure of who to donate to or believe they can’t donate enough to make a difference. GroundUp takes away that doubt by identifying the races with the biggest impact and uses these microdonations collectively to make meaningful contributions to these candidates,” said GroundUp CEO Jeremy Gottlieb.

GroundUp was developed for millennials by a pair of millennials, Eli Stein and Jeremy Gottlieb, to give people a safe, secure, and easy way to make a difference in the political process and support the issues they care about.

Users can easily cap their donations at a certain dollar amount and even chose the specific democratic candidates they want their change to support.

“People end up with about $1 in spare change every day. If just a fraction of the people who voted for Hillary or Bernie donated that change to Democrats in these swing districts, we would be able to flip a lot of districts blue and protect the issues people really care about,” said Gottlieb.

By concentrating donations on the most contested races in the country, the collective donating power of millions can provide a boost to candidates in the tightest races in swing states throughout the country.
