...would you want to continue treatments you knew would only prolong life but would keep you sick or would you enjoy what time you had left?
What is more important - Quality or Quantity??

I am a nurse and have spent most of my career in nursing homes and have seen the torture that people with "full code" orders go through. Many with absolutely no quality of life but their family keeps the full code status because of their own quilt, selfishness, fear, etc.
I NEVER want to be like that, nor so I want to see any of my family end up like that.

Quality takes precedence over quantity, however it depends on the circumstances. My age, the type of cancer, the stage it is in, the part of the body affected and most importantly the predicted prognosis would all be important factors in my decision. I would gather all the information that I can so that I can make the best informed decision for me and my family.
