Thank you for helping us to fight the fight, Kathy!  I've had lymphedema  in my legs since 2004 and I'm so tired of it.  I wear many hats to ensure that the fight continues and welcome you in the ring of the patients/advocates and many more joining us on  this fight of this debilitating disease. It's a shame. There should be a  cure.  I'm hoping and  praying for a cure to happen in my lifetime.

Monday is "Meet the Monthly Lymphedema Challenge for LE&RN at your home" -- a opportunity to challenge yourself to do something proactive in response to LE&RN's on going challenge.  

See, for FREE details, for a FREE activity:
http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Lymphatic-Health-Meetup/events/223782333/
We challenge you. And we ask you to join us as we tell the world: "I have lymphedema!" For too long, lymphedema has been kept in the dark, keeping sufferers silent and leading to a lack of funding for research and support. In September of 2014, at the 5th Annual Walk for Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases, Academy-Award winning actress Kathy Bates stepped forward to kick off the Face of Lymphedema Challenge. In this new effort, we are asking all tho...

This is something that has become a part of my life throughout the past decade, while still moving through a faith journey as a Stephen Minister and in a number of other ways as briefly outlined on the photo description.

Click on the photo and show the love for the photo and the story behind my story (and keeping sharing it with others), as well as the tenacity in keeping to move forward.  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10155566070840037&set=o.108755246150&type=1&permPage=1

Introduction
Presently, I am a Life Coach (http://beyondwordslifecoach.blogspot.com/) and Social Justice Advocate (http://facebook.com/KrastinSocialJustice) and author.  For more than 8 yrs and 50,000 crisis calls later, I have worked at the National Domestic Violence Hotline and others.  As part of my passion of being a #DVWarrior, I also run a radio show on BlogTalkRadio called Beyond Words Live (http://blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory) and founded the Domestic Violence Voices on fb (http://facebook.com/DomesticViolenceVoices) and in the G+ Community for more than 5 years.   Additionally, I have been a part of the Survivors' Caucus, Survivors' Voices, and Legal Advocacy Network, as well as other women empowerment groups.  More than 15 years of experience as a paralegal in family law, 5 years as a Victim's Advocate, 3 years as a Sexual Assault response advocate, etc. gives me a firm foundation into what I do, as well as other experiences (http://linkedin.com/in/advocateextraordinaire).

Awarded the Woman of Year Award for Economic Empowerment from the YWCA in 2013.

In 2013 we filmed and Season 1 aired in 2014, the tv show called CAFE CINEMA, where we reviewed a variety of international films with respect to their impact on a variety of social justice issues.  You can see the shows, as they have aired this year at http://CafeCinema.us

I'm also a mother, grandmother, photographer, calligrapher, blogger, writer, and so much more.

Love to hear more from you.
