Ok, I can no longer say nothing! If anyone wants a story- here it is.....For those of you that know my sister, Kindra Burton, I want to let you know what our government has done to her. She received a letter not only from medicaid but social security stating, now listen to this carefully.....she has been officially deemed no longer disabled! I am not joking nor am I lying. She, as of Sunday last, lost all assistance because ,,,,,well, I really don't know how this was determined. My sister has had cerebral palsy since her birth. This is not a curable disease! Is it because she has worked her whole life? Surely she did not loose her assistance because she can't walk without a cane or walker, or because she falls almost daily from the affects of this CP. Surely not because every muscle in her body is constantly fighting against her every movment. What happens next month when her pump (releases medicine thru out the day and is surgically placed) quites working because it needs to be replaced in November? Will the powers that be in government, deem her disabled when she can no longer walk on her own? When she can no longer get out of bed because her muscles are so tight she can't move? Maybe, it will be the day she can't swallow and needs to be fed with a feeding tube!! She is able to do what she does physically partially because of services she has received for the last 30 yrs. Now, that has been taken away from her. She is one of the hardest working people I know and will always be my HERO! She does not deserve this.....
