About the Joan L. Kidd MD Fight for Life Continuum
A Continuum of care is a concept involving an integrated system of care that tracks patients over time through a comprehensive array of health services spanning all levels of intensity of care. The Continuum is the secondary medical team for caregivers of cancer patients, which develops recommendations and all options of treatment for caregivers and patients to consider and act upon at their discretion throughout the treatment process. Our almost 1000 physicians, including Oncologists, Radiologists and other medical professionals are available to oversight a patient’s plan of care, review op notes, deliver another third party reading of CT scans, and suggest other options for treatment not being offered as options to the patient. We also deliver substantial support and assistance to the caregiver. In addition to our hands-on consult and oversight approach for caregivers, the Fight For Life Continuum will also provide the public, caregivers and patients with portal access on its website to comprehensive information on new development in cancer treatments and all related topics to cancer and treatment options. The goal of the Continuum is to insure that Caregivers and Patients are empowered with knowledge of all medical options available so that the patient battling cancer may get the proper care to maximize the life of their loved one with quality.
Scholarships are also available, on a case by case basis, to assist the patient and caregiver with expenses that may have to be incurred to travel to a location to receive the best care from the proper physician or to participate in clinical trials. The Continuum does not charge fees or ongoing costs for medical oversight services to the caregiver and patient, but is supported by members of the Continuum. Anyone can become a member of the Continuum and participate in “making a difference, one life at a time.”
