I have seen friends and relatives become ill and not know exactly where to go or what to do. Obviously a doctor is a good choice. But when a person has a fatal disease that requires research to make a right decision and dealing with insurance companies, etc., etc. Are there health advocates that one can contact that can be trusted? Are they paid for through health insurance and are they impartial in that they will help you make your own choices?
