Medical Facts Mural #1

This morning, Regina Holliday unveiled her first Medical Facts mural at Pumpernickels Deli on Connecticut Ave., in Northwest, DC.

If you are unfamiliar with Regina's story, I hope you'll pause to read it here. Her story outlines the series of frustrations and set-backs (understatement) she's experienced while serving as principal caregiver to her husband, Fred, not yet 40, diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Cancer early this spring. Fred is now receiving hospice care.
Regina, a mother of two young boys, is an experienced social advocate, having spent years working for special ed reform. Now she plans use her time and talent to bring attention to the issues of transparency in health care.
