    I was waiting for the mutation test for Tarceva but I am not a canditate.

    Decision Point

    I canot sleep. I am waiting for something to happen so I will die. My mother and father and aunt died of cancer very slowing ant I do not want my daughter to see me die the same way. They say I am too old and week to go through chemo, but it is my only choice at this point. Is it worth it for a few nire months of misery. I am ready to die. I have lived a full and good life. My affairs are in order and I wish to go quickly. I know that you cannot help with that, but I am at a cross road.
