Hi Grace Readers,  I want to share a newly published post written by one of our board members, Nancy Sladicka.  It covers most of the most important basic tips and tricks needed to become your own advocate in cancer care. 


Maybe the most important reason to have this info is because medical oncologists, even those who specialize, can not keep up with fast moving changes in every facet of the care and treatment of their patients. 


You Have Been Diagnosed - What Next? can help you become the advocate todays healthcare user should become. 


As always, don't hesitate to ask questions and share experiences here with us.  Your experiences and questions hold much more insight to readers than you may know. 

Take care all!


I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.
