Welcome to our Palliative Care Resources and Toolkit. Here you will find helpful information to assist you and your loved ones, as you navigate a metastatic breast cancer diagnosis and end of life conversations, choices, and decisions.
Two important facts we want to highlight and ensure you are aware of:
If you are diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, you are eligible for palliative care. If your physician has not offered you this resource, please ask if your oncologist can refer you to a palliative care team.
People are eligible to receive hospice care up to six months. This means you do not need to wait days or weeks to have access to hospice. The sooner you are able to be connected with a hospice team, the more support and resources you will have access to.
The goal of these resources is to help you and your loved ones be as prepared as possible with the logistics and to remove stressor so that you can focus on what is most important during this intimate time of transition.
