Overview

Cancer, along with the side effects from treatments, is a formidable foe. Palliative care is a means of managing fatigue, pain, nausea, sleeplessness and more.Please join us for a live Answers Now program on July 7th to discover how palliative care can help you live longer and better. 

Often confused with hospice care, palliative care is finally receiving the attention it deserves. From mitigating side effects to improving overall quality of life, it has become an integral part of cancer care. Dr. Subbiah Ishwaria, a leading expert from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and patient advocate Stacey Tinianov, will discuss the benefits of palliative care and explain how to incorporate it into your treatment plan.
