    Yes, I had a friend who had liver cancer, she was asked if she would participate with experimental chemo, she said no.
    She was already starting to feel like an impersonal lab experiment, the end was inevitable by then and she didn't want to lose her dignity.
    Tough choice but you have to respect their decision either way.

    Quality of life concerns?
    There are but two seasons. Winter, and preparing for winter.

    Hey Butch, long time no talk my amigo. I just heard of the situation last night after a text from Deva. Fucking gutted over here. I know I haven't been around much the last few years but my life took some turns and the treehouse fell to the back burner. We had some good times over the years from before you started this site, to you writing the good groundie guide to now. Sending good vibes from up north, not sure what else I can do.
