11756Fwd: 7 Keys To A Good Death
- Jun 25, 2014From: "DailyGood.org" <clubs@...>They also serve who only stand and wait. -- John Milton
Good News of the Day:
"Some years ago, I helped tend to a friend of mine who was dying of cancer. Near the end of his life, he had reached a place of equanimity around dying. But instead of honoring his wishes for a peaceful death, his doctors ordered aggressive chemotherapy treatment, which did nothing to halt his cancer. The treatments caused him immense suffering, rendering him unable to sleep, eat, or converse with family and friends as he was dying. Unfortunately, deaths like my friend's are not that rare...Is there a better way? Is a "good death" just an oxymoron? Or can the experience of death be far more positive -- an opportunity for growth and meaning?" Charles Garfield shares more.
