Author Cynthia Williams, in an Xlibris release, fearlessly exposes the allegedly alarming practices of the healthcare system in Lost: A True Story of Navigating the Healthcare System Against the Tide and Into Gastroparesis, her stirring book of drama, pains, and real-life horrors.

Lost brings to readers a long look back at the life of the author and through her experiences it reveals how the dysfunctional healthcare system of the past took her through a nightmare of two years, during which she deteriorated and starved. The old system, which Williams was a part of as a registered nurse, left her to fend for herself and eventually shattered her faith in it. This book also examines the structure of the old system and reveals that it was designed to make money, avoid lawsuits and protect its staff all at the great expense of the patient. Ultimately, it emphasizes how wasteful and abusive healthcare is and the need for further indepth and complete reform, not merely government sponsored plans.

In light of the recent healthcare reform, Lost: A True Story of Navigating the Healthcare System Against the Tide and Into Gastroparesis is a timely book that will leave readers shocked, awed, and compelled to do something. For more information on this book, log on to
