Rejecting Palliative Care


Interesting story in the NY Times about a doctor who worked with terminally ill patients helping them accept their status and opt for palliative care. When she herself became gravely and incurably ill she refused to give up and would not take hospice and palliative  care.

She, at the age of 40 was in denial. Quite understandably and a choice anyone can make.  Actually one does not know what one will opt for when one is faced with a grave choice.
