About meErin Havel is someone who thought the American health care system was fine until more than one insurance company proved the system was broken. In 2004 she began treatment on an AVM (arteriovenous malformation), and in 2007 she was diagnosed with CML (chronic myelogenous (or myeloid) leukemia). During this time she went through tremendous struggle with different health insurance companies and became an unexpected advocate for change in the health care system. Currently, Erin lives in Seattle, Washington and The Malformation of Health Care is her first book. She is an author, speaker, blogger and activist for young adults living with cancer and other rarely understood medical conditions. Her blog The Malformation of Health Care, and her Facebook Group continually strive to discuss current health care topics in the news.
