What Cancer Taught Me

I was at the Massachusetts State House, attending an event hosted in collaboration with the U.S. Pain Foundation and The Hope Collective. Topics discussed were very valuable, and there were many discussions around holistic health, versus the Western medical approach towards disease and illness.
