Empowered Decision-Making

POSTS ON THIS SITE BEGAN WITH MY DIAGNOSIS OF  UTERINE (ENDOMETRIAL) CANCER IN NOVEMBER 2013, BUT HAVE BEEN EXPANDING INTO OTHER HEALTH AND HEALTHCARE AREAS AND TOPICS—ALL WITH THE INTENTION OF HELPING PEOPLE BECOME FULL PARTNERS IN THEIR OWN HEALTHCARE DECISIONS AND RESPONSIBLE GUARDIANS OF THEIR OWN WELL-BEING.
ALTHOUGH I TELL MY PERSONAL STORIES, PAST AND PRESENT, I ALSO INCLUDE INFORMATIVE  RESOURCES & LINKS—FROM RESPECTED AND RELIABLE SOURCES—THAT EXTEND BEYOND MY EXPERIENCES TO PROVIDE PATHWAYS FOR BROADER PATIENT EDUCATION.*

PERSONAL PERSPECTIVES:

     DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO DO WHAT THE DOCTOR SAYS?

 Part 1: YES if you are getting radiation therapy for endometrial, breast, or other cancer – 4/7/14 (My Current Story – Uterine [Endometrial] Cancer)

 Part 2: When the answer may be NO – 6/17/14 (My Past Story – Ruptured Posterior Tibial Tendon)

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Although this site provides well-documented clinical information and personal perspectives, I am a medical writer, not a medical practitioner, and as such I do not dispense medical advice. This site is about helping people become more informed healthcare consumers so they can work in partnership with their healthcare teams when making medical decisions. This site is intended to supplement, not replace, the advice of your clinicians.
