NYS Program Focuses on Palliative Care

ALBANY —  The American Cancer Society and 17 other groups in New York state have launched a new campaign to help New York’s 908,000 cancer survivors and millions of others living with life-altering health conditions.
Their goal is to draw public attention to the availability of “palliative care” — help with issues like controlling pain to make life a little easier to bear for those with a chronic illness, whether they are sick and suffering or the disease is in remission and manageable.
