A cancer diagnosis can feel overwhelming, to say the least.

Deer in the headlights, frozen brain, memory trouble – all these are suddenly commonplace, and it’s as if the carpet has been yanked from underneath your feet.

Dr. Baumgaertel talks about the importance of having a multidisciplinary team, and promoting communication.

She also emphasizes how to clarify your personal needs early-on to request support, and regain control.

Bonus interlude: a poignant poetry reading with collage art accompaniment!
