A very close friend who I have never met is behind this.  As a matter of fact many close friends some I have met and some I haven't are responsible for me finding this site and I would like very much for you to get involved.  http://www.HealthDataRights.org  Please if you believe in your rights as a patient, if your a caregiver in need of support, if your just someone interested in the health field and your interaction with it. read about this and get involved. Only through our personal passions can you make a change in this world.  Let me tell you a little story about what happened to me Friday.  I met a miracle doctor in my home town.  I don't think I am suppose to mention his name and I won't but this is how the story goes.

I had appointments at our hospital early Friday morning.  I had blood work down and an appointment with a specialist in thyroids and their functions and malfunctions.  It would have been very easy for him to come in and tell me I needed a biopsy and we would go from there and after much time and money tell me it was a false scare and come back in a year.  This doctor made a special effort to pull up my sonogram and find a computer that he AND I could view it on and he told me," You can do what you want with this but I would let it go." There were some abnormalities but so slight and I am 62 and nothing is normal anymore.  Do you have any idea how much I appreciated his honesty.  In this time of everyone needing money, a lot could have been made but a lot was saved and we are friends for ever.

When the viewing was done we went back to the office and what did we talk about?  We talked about my blogging and how much it meant to me.  I gave him one of my cards and he told me a Parkinson's joke and we shook hands and as I went down the hall, I thought to myself, "This is the way it is suppose to be."

Make this difference for yourself  find this blog site.http://www.HealthDataRights,org and make a difference for you and for me and maybe the world......love Pokie
