My name is Jamie Gasser. And I became part of this world May 26th 1991. I am 20 years old. And a student at Stark State College studying Respiratory Care. I am also a student of the world. And I plan to live everyday to the fullest. And learn something new everyday. Because it is truly a great honor to be alive. My Mother Gloria Gasser is my hero. She recently passed away July 6th 2011. And she will live on through me until I'm gone. And it is my goal to bring what she taught to my children, and that it live on through them and beyond. Because what she taught was selflessness. And to me. That is the single most important thing that can ever be instilled in any one human being. She faced impossible situations and made it through every one of them. And she will inspire me forever and always. I love life. And I will cherish each breath I'm given. Because it is truly a reward.
Family, life, learning, respiratory care, lung disorders, patients rights.
I feel, in my experience that patients opinions and their loved ones opinions have been lost in the process of diagnosing and treating a disease or illness. An example. My mother had been sick for 3 years. And was constantly misdiagnosed. I researched online numerous times trying to find an answer for what was going on with my mother. I would bring it up to loads of different doctors. She was in and out of the hospital constantly. And every time I attempted to bring up something I felt in my opinion should be looked at. I was met with something like "Let me do my job." I felt like the doctors treated my mother and I as a third party in her healthcare. There ended up being a lot of things I was right about. And a lot of things they were wrong about. And now I'm left with countless "What if?" questions. "What if they would listened? Could there of been a different treatment?" My mother passed away July 6th. And I just want this to be prevented for other patients, and their families.
Anything at all. I am a student of the world. And learning is my purpose.
