Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I decided to become an advocate after an experience with my Dad. He had metastatic colon cancer and his doctor wanted to do a procedure that I didn't think was appropriate for my father and his condition. Initially my father agreed to the procedure, because his doctor didn't give him all the facts. After consulting with another doctor, we agreed to try a less invasive procedure that was more appropriate for his condition, so that we were able to get him home where he wanted to be. This experience made me stop to think about what would have happened if I wasn't there to intervene. My dad would have had something done that would have made his quality of life worse and he may not have even survived the surgery. I wanted to be able to help other people make informed decisions about their health. For many people, it's not always about quantity of life but quality of life.
