Bassam’s story

Bassam shares his story about being diagnosed with terminal cancer and his experience with palliative care. After being told the cancer was incurable, Bassam tried different medical trials to ease his pain and discomfort with no luck. Bassam chose to access palliative care to manage his emotional and physical needs. His pain eased and he was able to live a normal life at home with the help of palliative care. Palliative care gave him comfort and support throughout the rest of his life. Palliative Care Australia is very thankful for Bassam and his family for sharing their story.
