CAPC has released the first episode of its groundbreaking new podcast series A Quality Life featuring real-life stories from the perspectives of seriously-ill patients who are benefitting from palliative care. This series will shine light on a wide variety of disease-types including ovarian, colon and breast cancer, pulmonary hypertension, lupus, congestive heart failure, multiple myeloma and many more.
In the first episode in the series, we hear from Christine Buehlmann, a California woman whose life changed dramatically after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and began receiving chemotherapy. Christine discusses how the physical and emotional symptoms of her disease and its treatment were hindering her quality of life, until she received palliative care. Both Christine and her palliative care physician Dr. Joshua Fronk elaborate on the critical role that palliative care played in Christine’s treatment and life in this honest and compelling take on living with serious illness.
