Carolyn and I talk about options and taking control when we face end-of-life. Cure is not the only choice. Opting for quality of life is valid and important because living a life without quality is in some regards is not living.
When you know the choices you have and make decisions based on that understanding we acheive control when we most need it.
Our discussion came from a podcast/essay by Diane Meier, MD in Health Affairs ‘I Don’t Want Jenny To Think I’m Abandoning Her’: Views on Over-treatment

And death i think is no parenthesis”
