My Life, My Partner…Her Health…

I am gay, in my late 40’s, and in love with the most beautiful, generous, caring woman that I have ever met. We have been together for about 1 1/2 years now, and know (after both having a rough past with relationships) that we found each other for a reason.

I am fortunate to work for Philips which is a company that recognizes “same-sex partners” or “significant others.” My girlfriend suffers from a multitude of illnesses that keep her from working.

She had been accepted into the Olympic swim team when she was a passenger of an almost fatal car accident. This was just the beginning of an onslaught of surgeries and debilitating illnesses. Unfortunately, she also has inherited her mothers side of breast cancer.

We are currently waiting on results of the most recent mammogram. I know how fortunate I am to work for a corporation that does provide for “US”. This is an example of one large company accepting and caring, others need to follow their lead!!!

  • Health Care

    Our health is one of the most important things in life. But when it comes to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans, our nation’s health care system can involve little “health” and even less “care.”
