I always look to find that ‘other’ option, no matter where my patients are in their cancer journey. I want my patients to know that we are on the journey together and they can ask me anything along the way. It is important for all my patients to know that they will not and should not suffer anywhere along the way, and that I will treat them as I would my own family.
