What sort of recourse do you have when a cancer is detected not at stage 1 (the earliest stage) but rather, at stage 4, when it is far more serious and treatment is far more invasive?
How can you begin to deal with the magnitude of a preventable loss of a loved one that occurred as a result of a failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of cancer in a timely fashion?
