Save your sanity, time & money!

You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.


You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?

A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.

I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.

I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.

Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.

The Book Sheryl Crow Needs to Read

B'SD


17 Sivan 5772


Anyone listening to or reading the news probably knows by now that singer Sheryl Crow has a Meningioma, the very form of benign brain tumor that almost KILLED me!

What are the odds that she'll avoid future complications NOT being addressed in this news item? I'd say low unless she has a far more astute neurologist and neurosurgeon on her medical team. The doctor quoted in this article makes dismissive comments, as if Meningiomas were as harmless as freckles. True, some people get past their Meningiomas easily. But others face deadly implications. Readers need to know that:

  •  Meningiomas tend to come in pairs 
  • Crush nerves 
  • Cause cognitive, vision, balance, hearing and other problems. 
  •  One Meningioma can hide behind the other and not be detected on MRIs
  • Necessary surgery or Stereotactic Radiation treatments can cause secondary problems
  • The potential for further, crippling damage to the person with the hidden tumor is BIG 
  •  Meningiomas can cause death

    What a waste of an opportunity to educate the masses, FOX News. 

    For some of us mortals, Meningiomas can present life and death situations.

    That's a medical CRISIS worth crying over.

A medical crisis - you'd cry too, if it happened to you. Use your tissues and handkerchiefs with my blessings borne of experience. GOD gives you Permission to Weep. And you can say that to any critics after explaining that "It's MY Crisis! And I'll Cry if I Need To." Show them page 5 of the book to prove your point.




The Baltimore Sun did a better job of presenting an overview of Meningiomas at Brain Tumor Facts
