Question of the Week
"Hello, my name is Kathryn. I am a transsexual. I am writing for a friend who does not have a computer or web access. My friend Susan (also a transsexual) is on medicade here in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has been on HRT for over four years. All this time, Medicade has paid for her hormones. Now, Medicade wants to stop the payments for HRT therapy for transsexuals. This is a note to you for your consideration and a request for help if you are able. "
