After writing six letters to the “visiting” judge in this case, I decided to reach out to the Supervisor Judge who oversaw not just the county but also this courts Judges. Since I am not a lawyer and considering the content of the material, I was pretty sure I was reaching out to the wrong Judge on this issue.
Not only was this a huge health and safety issue for the general public but a couple of friends mine who were lawyers told me that they could be guilty of manslaughter or worse (considering the fact both of them treated me as a patient.) Throughout this entire process I had tried to do everything I could to avoid the legal route and simply protect others from their predatory ways.
Unfortunately, the way they had handled this made me believe neither party felt they had done anything wrong. It was as if the believed that their money, jobs and social status put them above right and wrong. This was one of the main reasons I have tried to get their file unsealed.
The general public needed to see what both people were capable of, so they could protect themselves and make informed decisions about their health care (Past, Present or Future.)
I was hoping i had simply gone to the wrong Judge and that this judge would be able to unseal the documents to help alert the public about who they were dealing with when it came to these “health care professionals” and public figures…

By this point I have written over 100 pages worth of Emails, Letters, Texts and THREE books. I have sent the court all of it and it has been almost a year since I have contacted them with one simple request. As of this post, I only received the initial response back in June of last year.
I had really thought one letter would be enough considering the content. While I could understand the court being reluctant to open such documents to a stranger, I was a patient, a FAMILY member and literally a party referenced in the sealed file. This when I learned Maria had actually used my copyrighted intellectual property to get a better settlement. That is to say she wanted to use the pain and suffering I went through to financial enrich herself further in the divorce case.
I wrote the judge another letter (The SIXTH one in this case) asking her to confirm whether my copyrighted intellectual property had been used in this case.

When I found out that Maria had agreed to have the divorce records sealed and had not reported Todd’s activities with me to any of the governing agencies in Texas (The Texas State Medical Board, The Texas Department of State Health, etc.) I wrote the Judge in the case asserting that unsealing the records was in the publics best interest. In addition to both parties working for the general public at the clinic as both physician and executive director of the clinic, each of them had either occupied or run for public offices for the county using their credentials as health care professionals as qualifiers for those positions. In my opinion that made them public figures and a greater degree of public scrutiny of both people was warranted as it was in the publics best interests. The below are the letters I sent and only the first one was answered:

As of the posting of these letters I have never heard back from Lisa or Madison after repeated attempts to contact them…

After I sent the unpublished version of the book to Maria’s family I didn’t hear from anyone. Later, a few of them told me that they had reached out and I believe them.
The reason I haven’t published my letters to them is simple. They were kind to me and showed me the care and concern of a real family. Not all of them called me after they got the published book but a few did. That gesture meant the world to me and while I never heard from my sisters, Maria or Todd I was disowned, it was nice to know I wasn’t expendable in everyones eyes.
To honor their request and keep their reaching out to me confidential, I decided not to post all of the letters to Maria’s family. I know this isn’t an easy situation for them and I want them to know I still love them and the rest of the family.
This website was created to answers readers questions of what I did to try and get my immediate family to address this issue. I hope it will also inform others who may have grown up in a similar family dynamic that you are not alone. disowned by their families for telling the truth, to let them know that they are not alone.
After sending Maria’s family and my sisters the published copy of the book, Maria finally filed for divorce. This was 21 months after I originally contacted her and “officially” looped her in on what had happened.
I immediately took the book out of circulation and waited for some type of sign that she, my sisters and the rest of the family were going to get on the right side of this. Unfortunately I learned Maria agreed to have the divorce records sealed, never reported Todd to the Texas State Medical in her capacity as executive director of Todd’s clinic AND ran for public office using her credentials as executive director AFTER I let her know what happened.
With the divorce records sealed, this all but guarantees the issues aren’t addressed and it really is a public health and safety issue at this point. My research has shown that this wasn’t an isolated event but those are not my stories to tell.
I continue to focus on doing what is right and operating in the publics best interests now.
As of publishing this website, I still haven’t heard from my sisters, Maria or Todd.
On February 3rd, 2016, I sent one last email to Pastor Landon. While deciding to publish the book felt like my only option, I wanted to make sure he got an advanced copy. The original title was Family Secrets.

Landon replied the next day, letting me know that he was continuing to pray for me and my family. I knew he had done everything he could and it was up to me to make this right.
After Maria and the family had shut down the possibility of even discussing the above with Pastor Landon, I decided to wait an additional six months before publishing the book. I prayed every day that there would be some type of last minute miracle, but in my heart I knew better.

She never responded after I mentioned the big project. At this point I am pretty sure she knew what I was talking about, but didn’t want to discuss it. After all, I had forwarded chapter one to Madison and Lisa to let them know what I had been dealing with.
I decided to wait another three months.
The Below are my emails to our Pastor.
Out of respect for him and his privacy, I have not attached his replies. He is a good man who simply tried to help me in a bad situation. Unfortunately, since when my family told him the didn’t want to seek spiritual counseling and some kind of reconciliation, there wasn’t a lot he could do.
I really had gone to him for a spiritual solution and to offer them one more chance to get on the right side of this one. They were not interested, but I will be eternally grateful to him for his council.
I have post my emails to him to demonstrate how much I benefited from his spiritual council. I do believe he helped me with the spiritual aspect of this and my night terrors lessened as a result of his council. I have paraphrased some of his responses in order for the reader to benefit from his wisdom.

I made a number of small donations over the years in appreciation of Landon’s spiritual council. I will be forever grateful for him and that I had the church as a place to go to with this problem.
I got an email from Pastor Landon saying he had talked with the entire family and no one wished to speak with me anymore. I know Pastor Landon did his best but you can only help people if they are willing to participate.
I will always appreciate Pastor Landon’s prayers, kindness and sage advice.
I sent my sisters one last email.

I never heard back from them.
My greatest fears had been realized and I was being phased out of the family.
While I knew where Maria and my father stood, I wanted to be there for my sisters if I could. I sent them all of the emails to date along with the below.

I heard nothing at all from them. I hadn’t really expected it, to be honest. But I am thorough. I sent one last email.
