This blog will help people better understand the day to day reality of losing a child to a system, although unintentional, at times does more harm than good, and the fight I wage in her honour to make healthcare safer. And although I’m censored and ‘correct’ when dealing with those within healthcare in telling my daughter’s story, somehow I’ve forgotten to tell my own uncensored perspective.
I need to do this. I need someone to stand witness to the incredible pain and frustration her gone-ness brings, since healthcare has not. I ask that you grant me empathy and support as I offer up my vulnerabilities; my pain, my fears, my frustration, my tears. And through my words, and through my videos, I ask that you be my witness. I need to tell my story, but more importantly, I need my story to be heard. Stand with me, for I need your help in healing.
