Alaina Giordano was diagnosed with breast cancer three and half years ago. That was bad.
This is worse: On April 25th, a judge in North Carolina used Alaina's cancer as a key reason to transfer custody of her 5-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter to her ex-husband (a man Alaina describes as "abusive" and who lives more than 700 miles away).
This is happening even though Alaina says her kids "know that I have cancer, they know that I go for treatment once a month now, they know that it's stable. They know me as mom, and it doesn't affect our daily life."
She has just two weeks to appeal, and her hope is that a huge outcry from the public and local elected officials can help reverse the decision.
Thankfully, that outcry is growing quickly. A petition started by Alaina's sister Lauren has more than 7,000 signatures, Alaina was interviewed on Good Morning America and the Today Show, and media throughout North Carolina and the U.S. are now covering the injustice.
But time is short, and the wrong outcome here sets a dangerous precedent for mothers and fathers with cancer or other serious diseases. Please sign Lauren's petition asking that Alaina Giordano's breast cancer not be used as a reason to take away her kids:
Thanks for taking action,
Shelby and the Change.org team
Alaina is urgently looking for a lawyer who can help with her appeal, pro bono. If you're qualified to practice law in North Carolina and can help, shoot me an email at Shelby.Knox@Change.org.
Change.org ended my membership a year ago because they didn't like the things I have to say. Now suddenly, they have discovered a shocking problem with how CPS and the family courts operate.
Apparently, it doesn't occur to them that the gross injustice the govt is doing to families is absolutely consistent with Democratic Socialism and fixing the CPS and Family Court nightmare MIGHT have been some HOPEY CHANGE people were imagining when they pulled the lever for the Obamination.
So now they are just trying to fight the insane Communism of CPS and Family Courts by asking for help finding a Lawyer. For crissakes.
It sure is a shame the NAACP, the liberals, the Democrats and EVERYBODY ELSE aren't MAD AS HELL about the CPS kidnappers and SLAVERS
Every parent needs to know How to Fight CPS
BEFORE the insane, lying, fascist agency comes to YOUR FRONT DOOR
