California Assemblymember Mary Hayashi Calls on California Congressional Delegation to Remember Needs of Neuropathy Patients at 3rd Annual "Neuropathy Action Awareness Day"

SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- As President Obama continues his push for national health care reform, more than 300 neuropathy patients, physicians and medical professionals gathered in Sacramento today to call on Congress to restore access to life-sustaining and lifesaving treatments for neuropathy patients. At a press conference kicking off the third annual "Neuropathy Action Awareness Day," California Assemblymember Mary Hayashi and those in attendance signed a petition encouraging the California Members of Congress to remember the needs of neuropathy patients while working on federal health care reform legislation.

"Neuropathy patients and advocates in California spoke with one voice today to demand access to the lifesaving treatments we need, and to help ensure that Congress protects neuropathy patients as it continues the national health care reform debate," said Michelle Vogel, Executive Director of the Alliance for Plasma Therapies. "As President Obama and Congress look for ways to cut health care spending, they must also restore access to critical therapies such as IVIG (intravenous immune globulin) which is used to treat patients suffering from neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, myositis and pemphigus, among other conditions."

Neuropathy Action Awareness Day, sponsored by the Neuropathy Action Foundation (NAF) and the Alliance for Plasma Therapies (APT), gathered patients, physicians and medical professionals and representatives from other organizations including The Neuropathy Association, Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy and International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation to learn about neuropathy and to promote awareness of the disease.
