Cancer is a terrible disease that affects many people either directly, or indirectly. Because of this, many people will understand that in lots of cases there is no cure for their loved ones. Instead, palliative care plans must be put in place and honest discussions about the future need to be had.
Palliative care is not a sign that the medical profession, the sufferer and caregivers have given up. Indeed, these steps are often the best way to discuss important details and ensure the last days, weeks, months or years of the cancer patients life are comfortable and as happy as they can be.
