Renowned FL Medical Clinic Misdiagnosed My 2 Cancers for 3+ years, Abandoned My Care, Surveilled and Intimidated Me When I Sought Justic

It is not lost on me how lucky I am to be alive. I am very grateful for this. It could have gone the other way. It is also not lost on me how disrespectfully and unethically I was treated by a renowned FL medical clinic. I will never really get over it. They misdiagnosed my Sarcoma and Thyroid Cancer for 3+ years. I share this because maybe my story will help improve something for patients. I tried to amend FL Patients’ Rights. I advocated for rare disease legislation. I protested in the street in front of the provider’s facility. I was terrified of these people at this powerful, wealthy facility but I was so rooted in belief that you cannot treat people the way they did me and think I will take it lying down. It was just a matter of me preserving my dignity and standing up for myself when no one else would help defend me. This provider failed me, and our legislators fail us miserably every day. Countless tests, scans, years of chemo for iron dextran for 6+ hours, hospitalizations for intestinal hemorrhages, transfusions, procedures, severe anemia due to the sarcoma tumor in my intestines they missed was a nightmare. They treated me like I was dumb female. Made comments about my appearance and posture. I was sick! I never felt well. I had two cancers. They were dismissive of the lump on my neck which was a rare, aggressive form of thyroid cancer. I was a well insured patient. I was a respectful, compliant patient. Didn’t owe a large bill. I was a good patient and I deserved to be treated with compassion and respect during a time that I was very sick. The sarcoma almost took my life several times due to their mistakes. Once this provider realized their mistakes, they terminated my care, dumped me like trash. My patients’ rights did not protect me. They are a lie. No one defended me. No one cared. I poured my heart into trying to get justice. I protested publicly in the street several times, I traveled from my home to the FL Capitol to DC and beyond to meet with legislators and try to get someone to listen and amend Patients’ Rights and protect us from unethical providers. I took my cause to the FL Constitution Revision Commission. I got zero justice. I was interviewed by reporters, but my story was hushed. I was literally surveilled, intimidated, threatened & bullied by the provider. This was heartbreaking & terrifying. I don’t trust anyone in the medical community or legislators anymore. It’s incomprehensible and inexcusable how they get away with their crimes against human beings. I have documents, photos, video of my protests, speeches, legislator meetings if interested. Thank you listening. My heart’s best, Kimberly
