I met somene whose father chose this path........


Recommended Posts

I was at the lab waiting for blood to be drawn yest and I was talking to a woman. Her father passed away from lung cancer last year. He was 77 years old and chose to forgo treatment because he wanted to live his life to the fullest. She said he was given 4 months and lasted 9 and that until the end, he was really living his life, laughing, smiling, and she was thrilled he made the choice he did because she really had quality time with him that she will treasure and might not have had if he was sick from treatment.

Just a little story from a daugther I spoke to for those who are choosing this path or contemplating it.
