I posted this ad because it does seem like my "team"—my oncologist and clinical trial nurse and the chemo nurses—really do strive to give me a good quality of life. It is propaganda, of course. But I really haven't seen any patients at Oncology who were angry at the standard of care they're receiving. At my facility anyway, which is in Walnut Creek, CA. I transferred there in an effort to get away from the indifferent oncologist at the Oakland, CA facility.
I won't go into the politics of why I'm receiving palliative care, rather than something that may resemble a cure—something that might be too expensive and fail, something I would have to pay out of pocket for at some place like the Mayo Clinic. I'm sure it's all business and all that. But the genius of Kaiser's new president is tapping into the whole northern California yoga-organic food-farmer's market-be proactive-exercise mindset. I just wish there were Kaiser hospitals in other places other than the West. Apparently there are clinics, but not big hospitals.
Of course, what this ad doesn't tell you is, to receive the stellar healthcare that I presently have will cost you about $1k/month for 2 people.
