Jay & Patient Advocacy in Healthcare

Jay has survived a variety of serious health emergencies, including an LAD Occlusion (the widowmaker), paralysis, sepsis, muscular atrophy, severe neuropathy, and an unbelievable amount of time in profound hypoxia. After regaining the use of his limbs, Jay had to re-learn how to feed himself, write, walk, and perform other basic tasks people tend to take for granted.

His remarkable recovery is a testament to the amazing team of medical experts and the advanced medical technology available during his treatment. Unfortunately, not all patients have access to the same resources available to Jay ┬áduring his hospitalization and subsequent convalescence — and fewer have a spouse as well versed in the healthcare system as Jay’s wife.
