This is an article that I’ve been thinking about since I first read it. I hope that everyone thinks about how they want to live (and die). While it wasn’t easy to have less time than I wanted with my mom, I understand her need to make the choices she did. She died with as much dignity as her cancer offered, by choosing not to fight hopelessly. Short of the Death with Dignity Movement becoming more widespread, it behooves all of us to think about the unthinkable and make difficult decisions while we are able. Involve your family and discuss your reasoning behind your choices so everyone understands what your wishes are if necessary.
