The above panellists are strong supporters of CancerStory.com's mission in helping people living with cancer. CancerStory.com also recognizes them as "Cancer Advocates" who have recovered enough from their own cancer experience to move beyond self-advocacy and now step forward to help other cancer patients have an easier journey.
Our invited speaker, Dr Patrick Kee has been involved in hospice care since 1990. Hospice care is a special journey for those facing an incurable disease that is life threatening. Dr Kee will provide an insight into how hospice care helps such people to live fully in the face of death.
This Forum also provides an opportunity for cancer patients and their caregivers to know what is true comprehensive care.
