I am trying to reach someone regarding this Episode. We are LOVING the show... BUT this Episode misrepresented Palliative Care which is NOT the same thing as Hospice Care. This might seem like a small thing, but it is not as Palliative Care can help so many people that are still in the Curative Stages of their illness. Palliative care is available to many folks who are under the assumption it is the same as Hospice Care (to qualify, you must have a life ending diagnosis in which your life expectancy is 6mos or less).... Palliative care is very different and available to so many. When your viewers are enjoying your show- they are also feeling what the actors feel.... If you misrepresent something SO IMPORTANT.. This idea will be planted in their minds. Therefore- they might not accept Palliative Care for themselves or a family member who would benefit greatly from it. We need to get the word out and I am asking for your help in correcting this!
Thank you in advance for your help.
Your Loyal Viewer
