Has Anyone Refused Treatment. Opted For Palliative Care And A Assisted Death?

Has Anyone Refused Treatment. Opted For Palliative Care And A Assisted Death?

Where are the stats on how long you live without treatment ? How many people out of a Drs client base decide NOT to do Chemo?
where is info on how many people decide not to treat or give up on treatment. Anyone think treatment is worse the disease ?
Some NHL's are not curable. I want to know how those people deal with their life, Hospice and pain control.
Anyone besides me considering not treating.
I can't be the only one.

Do You Use Things Spiritual In Dealing With Your Cancer?

Do You Use Things Spiritual In Dealing With Your Cancer?

Do you use things spiritual in dealing with your cancer?

If so what do you use? Prayer? Meditation? Certain books? Church, synagogue or mosque? Music? Poetry? I ask because I'm always looking for useful spiritual tools. Personally I use 12 step material and the book A Course In Miracles along with prayer. And there are certain organizations that I've found useful, that send out free booklets and magazines. But I'm always looking for useful things to add to my repertoire.
