Conditions of Use
Getting an opportunity to create a blog under any topic I want, is extremely special and rare. It would be easy if I knew exactly what topic I wanted to talk about. But let's just go with this;
I am currently reading a book titled The Last Lecture. This story is about a middle aged colege professor (Randy Pausch) who is diagnosed with Pancriatic Cancer, and is determined to give one more lecture to his students and community before he dies. If you are not aware, very few people survive when diagnosed with this specific type of cancer. It is usually a death sentance. The author of the book is no different and is told by his doctors that he only has about six months of good health left. The author is married, and has three children, ages five, three, and one. Which to me brings up these questions; Would you want to know how much time you have left? AND What would you do if you knew you only had six months to live? Personally, I think there are pros and cons to these questions.
Sure, you may have time to arrange your funeral yourself, and visit and say goodbye to everybody one last time-But would you really want your family to suffer knowing your gonna go in a matter of months? It is a scary topic and I could never imagine being thrown into a situation like that. What would you do?
