Has your child been diagnosed with a rare, life-limiting or chronic disease? Do you feel disoriented and scared? Being blindsided by a diagnosis of a child is a distressing situation for everyone in a family. You may be feeling discouraged by medical encounters with healthcare teams, and frustrated and disillusioned by countless mistakes, poor communication, and lack of care coordination. As a parent of a child with a rare disease I know the fear and uncertainty of what is in front of you. A life-changing diagnosis is overwhelming, and a private patient advocate can help you figure out what to do next, bringing you peace of mind and relief from uncertainty. As your advocate you can benefit from my personal experience and feel more confident you are prepared for encounters with your child’s medical team. Please reach out to see how you can start to feel better about choices, decisions, and a plan to move forward.
