S02 E15 - The Magic of Palliative Care: Our Stories
Show Notes

We continue our focus on supportive/palliative care in part 2 of our series.  This week, we hear directly from those living with MBC about their own experiences with palliative care, including its impacts on their physical, mental, and even sexual health. Special co-host Dr. Paula Jayne joins hosts Natalia Green, Lisa Laudico, and Anne Woodward as they speak with Leda Dederich, Shonte Drakefield, Dr. Deanna Duncan, and Stephanie Walker. We explore how supportive care services can enhance your quality of life and improve treatment outcomes by helping us stay on treatments longer. In addition, we discuss geographic and racial disparities in access to these services throughout the U.S and how to advocate for supportive care for yourself.
