CAPC has released the fourth episode of its groundbreaking new podcast series A Quality Life featuring real-life stories from the perspectives of seriously-ill patients who are benefiting from palliative care. This series shines light on a wide variety of disease-types including ovarian, colon and breast cancer, pulmonary hypertension, lupus, congestive heart failure and many more.
In this episode, we hear from Malcolm, a 51 year-old Philadelphia man whose life changed dramatically when he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Malcolm shares how palliative care helped manage his pain and improved his quality of life. His palliative care physician, Dr. Arthur Siegel, speaks to the way that pain affects a person not just physically, but emotionally in this honest take on what it’s like to live well with a serious illness.
