Spotlight on Metastatic Breast Cancer - Advanced Care Planning

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

This episode is part of our special series “Spotlight on Metastatic Breast Cancer” and tackles a subject that can be uncomfortable for a lot of people and often causes anxiety: advanced care planning and the hard conversations that it involves. When you’re diagnosed with a life threatening disease like metastatic breast cancer, it can feel like these issues are forced on you. But planning ahead and being prepared does a very important thing-- it allows you to focus on what’s really important: as emergency room doctor Dr. Jessica Zitter says, “living the way you want to be living all the way to the end.” That positive statement will be our north star throughout the episode. We are joined by Amy Berman who has been living with metastatic breast cancer for over 5 years, Lori Bishop, Vice President of Palliative & Advanced Care at the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, and attorney Paul Pittman who specializes in estate planning and administration.
