February 14, 2010 will be a day that I will always remember. It was the day that I lost my daughter to medical malpractice. I never would have imagined that the same medical industry that kept her alive through her difficult delivery, would be the same who took her life. Not only did they take her life, but justice was never served. Tort reform kept me from getting the justice for my daughter's death. I had to redirect my pain and this is how The National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association was birthed. "We must have avenues for change"
From Agony to Advocate
A Victim's Organization
The National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association (NMMAA) was founded in 2013 by a group of everyday people who personally were victims, or knew someone who was a victim, of medical malpractice. It was created on the belief that every American citizen has the right to life and have justice served when they have been harmed by others. From its inception, the NMMAA has had a strong desire to raise awareness and petition for change. Our organization has faced the reality that, often, no justice is served for the victims of those harmed by medical negligence.
The NMMAA is the first non-partisan civil rights organization of its kind with patient advocates throughout the United States. Our organization dedicates itself as a national network to end medical malpractice through partnerships with local and national organizations across America.
The NMMAA is the first and only organization that has received numerous proclamations from states across the United States for its advocacy related to medical malpractice.
The National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association (NMMAA) has been faced with challenges in the area of medical malpractice. Although we have made some strides through education, legislation and our grassroots efforts, it is still an insurmountable task if we do not solicit the help of our community. Advocacy is our tool that will advance our mission, empower our supporters, ignite public debate and discussion and lead us to solutions for this pressing problem. Advocacy can help us address the systemic causes of medical malpractice rather than the symptoms. The NMMAA advances to promote changes that address the underlying causes of medical malpractice in our country. We are dedicated in ensuring that those of less power have their voices heard. We have found out that our public officials do not know the whole story and how their policies are affecting our community, but we at NMMAA have found some successful innovations and initiatives that can ultimately change the face of "medical malpractice."
