Video 19: Cancer: Our Exit Strategy: Depriving Death of Its Strangeness

David and Debbie shared their story in a Plenary Session with 2500 hospice and palliative care professionals at the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. The Academy has graciously shared the audio recording of this very special presentation. We hope in sharing it we motivate others to request Palliative Care and inspire those who work so hard at delivering it to continue with this special mission. We alternate giving the patient and caregiver experience and strategies for handling this journey. Its a hour long but we believe worth sharing with you!

  3. Very good blog it is much related to my blog

  4. I will never forget how touched I was, deep to my heart, while listening to you both at this conference. I currently work in the neonatal ICU while being a hospice home-care volunteer "on the side". I had planned to move on to hospice nursing, attending conferences and learning as much as I can before making the move. But listening to you at the conference planted a seed that continues to want to burst forth. Wondering if you know of any kind of template that would be conducive to becoming a palliative care advocate in the way of offering a service to doctors to be called when a patient is given a diagnosis, to cover all the things that, as you mentioned, are so important and best covered before they are needed? I can't get this idea off my heart so I figured it might be worthwhile to investigate! Blessings to you both, and thank you for being so selfless as to allow us all into your journey.

  5. Great blog, David. You have an incredible story!

  7. It is very inspirational. The best way to treat cancer is faith to god. And of course by the help of science. Many patients believe that cancer treatment in India is one of the best. By the way, thanks for sharing your video.
