Regina Holliday’s Medical Advocacy Timeline

10 Mins read
I began this timeline with the help of Cindy Throop in the fall of 2009 due to some negative comments on posts about our story. Apparently some folks that thought I was a fiction created to promote health reform. I assure you our story is all too real.   This timeline was originally hosted on Open Health.

I began this timeline with the help of Cindy Throop in the fall of 2009 due to some negative comments on posts about our story. Apparently some folks that thought I was a fiction created to promote health reform. I assure you our story is all too real.   This timeline was originally hosted on Open Health.  e-Patient Dave was looking for the link this week and when he discovered it was gone, found a cached version via the way back machine archive.

Although I was so happy there was a cached version, I thought the Timeline could use an update.  So here it is…
