Pushing for Lung RFA & the Power of Hope

Postby DK37 » Tue Aug 18, 2015 2:54 pm

I don’t normally post my "personal blog" links here but I thought this one could be helpful so I decided to. It has to do with the path I took getting my new lung RFA approved - taking out the specifics, the gist being: Be your own strong health advocate, be pushy if need be (I needed to be!) and always keep an eye out for positive role models from our community to give you Hope…
