For Grace’s new series, “The Pain-Cancer Connection”, will launch next week via Facebook Live in partnership with The Mighty, the leading online site for chronic illness advocacy. The show will be hosted by For Grace founder, Cynthia Toussaint, who will interview leading experts (healthcare providers, authors, advocates, etc.) about the dynamic intersection between cancer and chronic pain. This educational series will explore, among other related topics, how high-impact chronic pain puts patients at risk for cancer and how cancer treatment often leads to chronic pain. The series will also spotlight the use of integrative care as a core therapy for both diseases.
