      That is a very good idea because recent studied show that getting pallative care early on has a dramatic improvement in over all survival . This type of care is all about living. Its about helping you live well.

      Excellent question and attitude. In my experience with family members, Hospice
      was a helpful and compassionate resource

      Pallative care is not Hospice. I think you already know the difference.

      cearnsha - let me just add that palliative care is the phase I am now just entering and I imagine I will continue to be in pretty much for the duration. I don't have experiences to share yet - since it's just beginning - but I would be happy to do so if you would find it helpful to share information as we move through the coming weeks and months. Hope things go well, JMS
