Why Does Our Healthcare Have So Much to Do with “Luck”?

I know someone whose girlfriend died of cancer after a valiant struggle. Today he sent me some of his thoughts about the medical system. He gave me permission to publish this part. I think he asked some great questions:

Is it right that our ventures into this medical system are dependent on luck? Luck that someone makes a right decision?  Luck that we have that rare doctor who is an honest healer? Luck that the drug they choose actually does more good than harm? A medical system which is largely dependent on luck is a pathetic joke.
