A family member suffering from cancer is electing not to undergo chemotherapy. Is this silly?


Many other members of the family do not believe in homeopathy and natural medicine for chronic illness. Should they even have a say or is the patient's election the only consideration?

    Thanks Joan - I am sure that you're right. It is pretty difficult if to understand at time. The "correct" treatment, I suppose, must be the one with which the patient is comfortable.

    Thanks for the insight - it seems that a combination of the two is also possible i.e. healthy adjusted diet to compensate for the challenges of chemo...
