You leave out the family members who do not want the family members around anymore. I see this ALL THE TIME working in the nursing home. Older mom or dad gets cancer and they don't want anything done, nevermind chemo. It's disturbing. You should see the waste involved with these cancer drugs. Very few of these drugs work. I saw a Dr.Oz episode talk about a miracle cancer pill and thought to myself, wow they're talking about 'sutherlandia opc/rose laurel'? I take two rose laurel pills a day sometimes three because I don't have health insurance yet. Rose laurel vs. gleevac that costs $3000/mo...I'll take the rose laurel for now.
