We are not going to go all philosophical or catchy today because today, we talk about the most sensitive topic in healthcare. 

Cancer that targets everybody and everyone they can – males, females, and children, young and old, wealthy and poor — kills millions and infects millions more each year. 

Palliative care is an important component of cancer care that is provided alongside therapies to delay, halt, or cure the disease. Cancer, as well as its treatment, can result in physical symptoms and adverse effects. 

They can also have psychological, social, and economical consequences.
