Date & Time:
Thursday, July 25, 1-2 pm (EDT)

Featured Presenter:

Beth Popp, MD

Webinar Description:

A diagnosis of breast cancer is scary. You’re faced with treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. There can be difficult side effects and symptoms caused by the disease and its treatment, such as pain, nausea, fatigue and anxiety.  Many can linger and persist afterwards as well.  Things can feel overwhelming.

Palliative care can help.  When palliative care teams work in partnership with cancer specialists, people living with breast cancer experience reduced symptoms, better communication and other benefits.  Once symptoms are controlled, patients can get back to daily activities. They also have someone to help them plan for the future.
