I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of Wayman Tisdale. He was a musician, basketball star and amputee with an incredible spirit and generous heart. After his amputation, he set up a foundation to help children and families whose prosthetics were not covered by insurance. He was a bright, shining star - a beautiful example of courage and grace.

While I was focused on the lost cause of KS, Texas passed prosthetic parity into law! That makes 5 states just this year! (VA, MD, AR, IA, TX) That's incredible. It's time to focus on the national parity bill and stop beating a dead horse. The Amputee Coalition of America has a nice new website for the parity campaign. Check it out here.
