How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter by Sherwin B. Nuland
How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter

mrg0888, September 18, 2008

When I found out that my 80 year old grandmother had advanced cancer and was choosing not to treat it... I found myself suddenly afraid for her because I was uncomfortable with the fact that I didn't know what would happen to her at the end. I didn't know anyone with cancer who chose not to remove it or treat it with chemo.

I bought this book because it gave me exactly what I wanted to know and didn't try to beat around the bush about the bodily processes that happen when we die.

At first I was only interested in finding out about cancer, but I found myself reading the book from cover to cover.

It is so wonderful to find someone who is willing to give the facts on this subject! It gave me great comfort because I knew what was coming and didn't have to fear the unknown... When my grandmother's disease progressed, I was ready. She passed on 09/02/2008.
