Like a lot of times when dramatic realizations occur, something happened in my life that caused me to rethink my focus, to shift my priorities, to change my perspective. Through telling the story of the health care that was provided to my dad during his ten-week long battle with brain cancer, I want to challenge the way other health care providers think about their patients, in hopes that that shift in perspective will help them to provide better care to their patients, especially those who are facing life-altering illness or injury. I have decided to set a goal of writing a book, one that will come from parts of the story as it has already been told through this blog and from added accounts of what happened during the time of my dad's illness. My goal is to tell the story piece by piece on this blog so that it can be shared in book format with people who are involved in the treatment and care of individuals with life-changing illness or injury.
