This film follows Patty Myers as she fights for change within the hospital industry. She shares how her late husband, Tony Myers, was poorly treated due to lack-of-care, malpractice and restrictive (and ultimately deadly) hospital protocols. She also chats with senators and other individuals who have seen similar situations occur across the country. Join her on this journey as she not only fights for her husband, but also for patients to be in control of their healthcare journey. Enough is enough. It's time to speak up. It's time to take a stand. It's time for change.
My husband Tony was a fun guy. I was married to him for 31+ years. He loved fishing, making people laugh, Virginia Tech College Football, and Jesus. He died unnecessarily due to deadly, "stay-in-the-box," hospital protocols. I am here to stand up for him and for all the other millions of valued people in this country. My husband tried to fight for his life but the hospital kept saying no. We ALL need to STAND UP!
