Carolyn, I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband. It can’t ever be easy, but when you are not only fighting cancer (or an equally debilitating illness) but also have to take on a whole institution, it is terribly overwhelming.

In a very similar way, I had to advocate for myself, my unborn babies and my sick preemies. I did the “screaming” and the “shrieking,” but no one would listen. Unfortunately, I know this beast too well. If interested, you can read about Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles here.
