Wrongful Death Archives

Skin cancer isn't always where you expect

One reason that doctors may miss skin cancer is that it can show up in nontraditional places where they do not expect to see it.

On the world stage, around one million babies die annually in this short time span, experiencing just a single day of life before passing away.

A child's death is the most difficult event in a person's life

It's one thing to look at statistics about childhood fatalities or to consider the reasons why a child may pass away during birth or in the hospital after birth. It is quite another to really think about the trauma that this presents for the parents and how their lives will never be the same.

What is the most common type of cancer?
