What I Want to Do:


 
My Page Billboard
I live in Southern California, was born here but spent half my life in Oklahoma.  So I have a strong appreciation for both the city and wide open spaces. I have always lived by the belief that the greater good should always be considered even at the cost of personal sacrifice or inconvenience. Unfortunately we live in a world that is ruled by more of a hedonistic standard. Most people don’t want to be bothered or inconvenienced much less get involved.

 

Hopefully this is something that will change.  My personal goal is to make a difference whenever I can and to lead by doing. This not only refers to being an activist but in matters of every day life and existence.

 

Almost three years ago I was diagnosed with a rare, incurable lung disease that damages the heart. The last three years have been extremely challenging and I have learned a lot about our healthcare system and many of the potholes (some seem like black holes). It has caused me to be very alert, conscious and informed on healthcare issues.  Particularly issues regarding the State of California, Medicare, Stem Cell Research, also Chronic and Rare disease.  My particular illness is Primary Pulmonary Hypertension.

 

However, I have not abandoned my life long commitment to other issues of importance like the Environment, Civil Rights and many, many other issues of importance. I love and appreciate other people who realize the value and importance to try and make a difference in the world.

About Me I have a good sense of humor, you have to look at the humorous side of things often or go crazy. I am crazy about my kids. I am the luckiest person to have these three as my children (Ages 20, 23 and 24). I try to take one day at a time, appreciate all the good in each day, and there always is something good. I'm optimistic.
