Kids in Houston, who have serious medical conditions, often have to spend a large amount of time in the hospital. Instead of getting to play with no worries in the world, they are trapped in hospitals, frequent doctor visits, therapy sessions and other medical circumstances. When a lifetime of serious medical concerns is caused by a physician error, the results can be tragic for families and victims alike.
Hearing that you have cancer from your doctor is a devastating situation for any patient. The thought of months of invasive treatments, long hospital stays, and loss of hair, among the many other side effects of cancer treatment can be overwhelming.
Cancer in children is one of the biggest heartbreaks that can face any Texas parent. The idea of losing a child is more than most parents can bear to think about. And when it is alleged that the cancer could have been diagnosed earlier, and that if it had been the child might have lived, the situation becomes even more tragic.
For Houston residents, the birth of a child can be the most joyous of occasions. The anticipation of the parents' new bundle of joy and the careful planning of everything from the baby's room to making a birth plan is all part of the process for expectant parents.
