Illness is something which afflicts the rich as well as the poor, the affluent as well as the downtrodden. It does not choose its host according to social position, educational background, or economic status. In this century the medical sciences and the medical professions have minimized the hazards of illness. Yet the costs of preventing or curing illness, and the financial burden placed upon the victim, persists and grows.
