Patient & Family Advocacy

Every patient and family deserves the strongest, most life-affirming advocacy they can get. For every few great physicians, medical institutions, and insurance companies that do provide excellent care, there are others who do not serve patients and families in a manner consistent with their human dignity. We can step in to be the advocate that a patient or family is missing, helping navigate a crisis medical situation in a positive, life-affirming way.

 

Our 24/7 Crisis Lifeline for at-risk patients and families

Every day, patients and families find themselves at-risk of their human dignity being violated due to a physician, medical institution, or insurance company with differing views about what sort of treatment they deserve. In the most extreme cases, patients face the prospect of someone in a position of power denying them food and water through forcible removal of a feeding tube. In more common cases, patients and families face other forms of denial of care that lead to poor, sometimes fatal, outcomes. The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network's 24/7 Crisis Lifelife connects at-risk patients and families with the medical and legal advocates they need to ensure the best outcome possible at a difficult time.

If you or a family member is at-risk, contact our 24/7 Crisis Lifeline for assistance:
