As a woman with metastatic breast cancer, I did not find this article all that helpful. No where was there information on what type of supportive care is considered palliative care. All it said is that palliative care is improving the quality of life. Do you give us drugs the doctor can't? Do you send us to a counselor who tries to help us accept the unacceptable? Do you give us a phone number to call if we are feeling down? If most patients and their families don't know about palliative care, then an article that doesn't tell them what it is other than it will provide supportive care useful?
