Hope and Expectations

Diseases are given costly crowns
And health is forsaken: what nod to cost is this?

People expect many things from medical care, sickness has a way of doing that, and medical care does save (extend) the lives of many who suffer from disease and injury. But medical care seldom cures disease or restores function. Even so, hope springs eternal and there are always avenues to promote hope. For most chronic and deadly diseases there is more hope for prevention than cures. That involves promoting health rather than a disease and there is no money in such an effort. When you think about it, that would be refreshing.
