I know how hard this is. I cared for my teenage son, Zach, for more than two years as he battled a terminal brain tumor. Beyond my role as a grieving parent, my experience taught me that managing a serious illness or injury is incredibly challenging work for which no one is ever fully prepared. The more I learned, the more I realized the struggle is far greater than I ever imagined. I also learned that being engaged in the process results in better care. My experience and new understandings compelled me to help others manage illness or injury. It’s not always easy and it’s not without work, but taking the steps necessary to become an involved, organized member of your medical team will help you manage your role and may even lead to better care for your loved one.
