Palliative Care. What Is It and Should You Care?

Palliative care. Do you know what it is? If you don’t, then you are in the same boat as about 78% of people who answered a 2011 survey done by the American Cancer Society.2 In fact, only 8% of people said that they feel knowledgeable or very knowledgeable about what palliative care is. That’s a shame because palliative care can make your life a whole lot better if you are experiencing symptoms from your cancer or cancer treatment that are not being addressed by oncology.
