Dating While Dying
When you’re facing a terminal illness, getting and keeping a partner is a unique challenge. Dating is hard enough, but singles with a limited time left may want to have some social fun while they can.

Taking a light-hearted approach to dating while dying makes it simpler and more enjoyable. Honesty about your situation can make things a little less stressful.

Listen as Josie Rubio joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss her personal journey of dating while dying.
