My guest is Erin Havel, author of The Malformation of Health Care:  Illness, Insurance, and a Young American's Struggle for Care.  If you have an illness, struggling with insurance companies and generally feel lost and not getting help, this show is for you.  Erin is an advocate for young adults, educates them about the issues and gives them hope to survive.

Erin tells her story of having a disease that no surgery can fix, of having to fight the powers that be in providing that care and how she is doing today.  Her healthcare issues are dealing with vascular malformations, a rare medical condition yet so ellusive it is generally missed until there is a medical crisis.
