"Stage IV cancer" and "not curable." Hearing those words 2+ years ago made David Oliver's knees go weak. But instead of retreating, David, along with his wife, Debra Parker Oliver, went public about the disease. On December 3, 2013, the couple spoke at the University of Missouri's School of Medicine, and this is a video of that talk. Listen to them openly discuss their experiences with a cancer diagnosis, treatment, palliative & hospice care, contemplation of death, and bereavement.
