  • Dear Dave,

    I wrote to you from my newly created Twitter account @Your_Advocate asking to discuss your “Standard of Care” idea. I have a strong interest in creating a website to help patients fight their commercial and Medicare insurance denials. Having a research area within the site that allows patients to understand their treatment options feels like a natural fit to this content.

    I have looked into creating a 501C3 and want to offer help to people free of charge. I have a lot of experience in the medical device field and have been working as an advocate and marketer since 2007.

    Do you have the time and inclination to discuss this further?

    Best regards, Catherine
