I'd say this is the best source of palliative care for our particular cancer. Just knowing that others have been or are going through the same experiences we are makes our situations tolerable.
I've long thought that palliative care needs to rise to the forefront in cancer treatment. Not everyone wants to be subjected to treatment after treatment after treatment in hopes for just a few more days or months of life, but don't know what else to do.
