Free Medications Available

In addition to being an author, I write press releases and help folks get media exposure. I guess that would be the natural thing to do since I spent more than 25 years as a journalist.

So I wrote this press release on behalf of a woman who says she can show you how to get FREE MEDICATIONS. So here it is:

Why Pay for your medication when you can get them for FREE? That’s right! Find out how you can get all of your medications for free in a new workbook, written exclusively to assist patients in need.

The workbook is the brainchild of patient advocate Rebecca Templet. She says, “Most people, who are on a limited income and don’t have prescription coverage, don’t know where to get assistance. My workbook shows them the process of getting their medications free from the drug manufacturers.”

Ms. Templet’s efforts have assisted several hundred people over the past three years, as well as helping to save them thousands of dollars in prescription bills. “I believe in the concept of paying it forward,” says Ms. Templet, who adds, “if I’m able to get the information,then I believe it’s my obligation to share it.”

For more information on how you can receive the book, How to get your Medication Free, contact Ms. Templet at 931-721-3683 or go to her website: http://www.getmedsfree.com Ms. Templet is also available for interviews.

What if?

What would you do if you were told by a doctor that you only had a short time to live as a result of breast cancer?

What would be your response?

I invite you to listen to the compelling and inspirational story of a woman who was given only a SHORT TIME TO LIVE. That was 20 years ago!!!

She is an awesome example of God's goodness and healing power.

Tune into my podcast: Whatever! http://www.babyboomerbev.podOmatic.com

It will make you appreciate every day of your life, no matter what's going on.

Why is America afraid of strong African-American Women?

My mouth nearly dropped to the floor when the announcer said baby boomer diva Vivica A. Fox and her partner were in the bottom two in the latest round of competition. How could that be? She and fellow competitor Monique Coleman gave stellar performances and, according to the professional judges, they both earned the right to move on to the next round.

But wait a minute! America had a say in who would stay and who would have to leave. So I guess that explains why Ms. Vivica was voted off the show.

Let's face it, since the beginning of this year's dancing competition, the actress has made us all aware of how good she is. If she didn't say it verbally, her facial expressions surely did. There were even times when we might've thought she was dancing alone since she rarely allowed her partner to make any comments. But nevertheless, she gave a top notch performance week after week which has to make you question the actions of the voting public. Maybe if Vivica's demeanor had been more like Monique's she would be moving on to the next round. Maybe if she had a sad story to tell about a near crippling injury during childhood, she would be returning to the dance floor. But no - -all this self-confident diva had was "attitude" and plenty of it. That may have proven to be more than America was willing to tolerate.

I can just hear someone in America's Heartland saying as she is dialing in her vote, “Vivica, darling, you can dance around and look gorgeous all you want but we'd rather not have you point out your superior dancing skills and exuberate such an air of confidence."

Not long ago, there was another African-American female who displayed an air of confidence and made a lot of noise on "The View." She gone now too.
