    COVID-19 has the attention right now. How does this affect healthcare for other serious illnesses?

    Has anyone ever had a bad experience or lesser attention or care due to COVID-19?

    In the Spring my husband quite responding to the clinical trial he had been on for 14 months. His blasts had gone back up to 13% so the doctor at the Center of Excellence that he was treated at tried to find another clinical trial. Because of COVID-19 alot of the clinical trials were not accepting new participants and he was not a match for any that were available in our area so he had no other options.
