LOS ANGELES, Calif., May 14 /Christian Newswire/ – “We’re looking for the healthiest woman in America – but as we know, health is about so much more than just avoiding disease,” states. Liz Vacarello, Editor-in-Chief of Prevention Magazine. “It’s about eating right, being optimistic, & exercising. Its about having people look at you and say, ‘wow, if she can be healthy – than I can, too!’”
“Now the hard part begins – because now the American public needs to vote for the woman that inspires them most!” declares Ms. Vacarello.
Kate Adamson, survivor of a massive double brainstem stroke at the age of 33, gained national & international attention during the weeks preceding the starvation & dehydration death of Terri Schiavo. As an outspoken advocate of saving Terri from the horrible pain of being without food & water, Kate is one of a very small number of living & functioning people that can testify to the pain involved in that type of ‘treatment’. She had her feeding tube pulled for 8 days and shares how it was one of the most painful experiences of her life. “I was paralyzed completely. I heard the doctors and my husband talking about how very sick I was. I know what its like to be trapped inside a body unable to give your caretakers the sign they’re looking for to let them know that you’re still here – that you want to live!” declares Ms. Adamson.
“Since my stroke, advocacy for the disabled is something that I have dedicated my life to. I can be a voice for those without a voice. Winning this contest will help me to continue traveling the country speaking out on behalf of those who cannot speak. I have met with governors & state legislatures, members of the medical community, families & friends of those afflicted. I am in the unique position of knowing what is needed during this time of life & death decisions. The contest prize will allow me to continue to do what I feel God has called me to do.”
