This patient education video offers an introduction to palliative care, which provides support and relief to any person from the symptoms of cancer or side effects of treatment, regardless of age or type and stage of disease. It is led by Dr. Michael Fisch, survivor Holly Anderson, Dr. Jennifer S. Temel, and Dr. Dorothy M.K. Keefe.
In collaboration with the LIVESTRONG Foundation, ASCO is pleased to offer this series of educational videos designed for people diagnosed with cancer between the ages of 15 and 39. This series -- entitled Moving Forward: Perspectives from Survivors and Doctors -- offers information on common challenges faced by young adults with cancer by providing two videos on each topic. One video, from LIVESTRONG, provides views from young adult survivors. The other video, from ASCO, offers guidance on the same topic from medical experts.
