Losing weight isn’t easy. There are many steps to getting there. I fight a daily battle myself. Giving birth to six amazing children while also suffering six miscarriages takes a toll on a womans body. Many of wish we could just blink our eyes and the weight would just melt away. This is far-fetched and unrealistic. So we look for articles to read, food to eat and any type of exercise that will help bring the weight down and hopefully keep it off. No one thing will work on its own.  I would like to share with you some articles and recipes that will at least educate you and help you decide what’s next in your fight to stay “fit and healthy”.  Good Luck! Felina Silver Robinson

As I read the story about Alexis Shapiro, 12, of Cibolo, Texas and her parents, Ian and Jenny Shapiro, battle to obtain surgery to have a benign tumor removed from their daughters brain so that she won’t eat herself to death sickened me.  I suffer from a great deal of my own neurological issues and have friends who were literally walking dead until they had life saving surgery of other kinds.  I’m sure most people are well aware of just how serious any brain tumor can be whether it is benign or malignant.  Tumors obstruct vital parts in the brain and can and will cause severe dysfunction on any part of the brain it wants to latch itself onto.  I’m by no means speaking as a doctor, just a patient with my own experiences.

I question how any insurance company such as “Tricare” would not find a way to work around their bariatric surgery rule based on the severity of a patients symptoms, in this case, Alexis Shapiro’s. It is my hope that whatever powers that be will open their eyes to the needs of young Alexis. Many other patients have thrived once receiving this surgery and their are more than enough documented cases reflected in the NBC article “Obese, but starving: Girl, 12, denied weight-loss surgery for rare illness” for them to refer to. I would like to see a change made by all insurance companies whereby they are required to make changes on a case by case basis in their rulings so that no child’s life hangs in the balance because of a simple age rule. Disease does not care how young or old you are, it takes its victims as it chooses and no one should be left powerless to fight that battle, especially when a child is involved.

I wish the Shapiro family luck in their search for help for their daughter Alexis.
