MyNDTALK - Apryl Allen - A Tango with Cancer

Apryl Allen was desperate to learn what her future would hold after a diagnosis of breast cancer. What she didn't anticipate was an underlying factor no one talked about . . . healthcare. Depicting the poignant complexities patients encounter, Apryl takes us deep into the realities of the human side of the disease: the nerve-wracking undertakings of her quest to find multiple health specialists through the aftermath of medical bills. Apryl reminds us compassion is a vital element to the healing process. Apryl also discusses how, in today's medical world, many health professionals have abandoned the practice of altruism.
