I'm waiting for the results. I don't want to go through chemo or radiation. I don't want to suffer for months or years and there be no guarantee I'll live. I do have young children and if I die they will be taken care of. I know it sounds selfish but I watched people go through cancer treatment and I don't want to go through it.

I have always thought cancer treatment kills people faster, and takes away any quality of life. Good for you.

Kind of depends what kind and what stage. If you refuse treatment for, say, stage 1 breast cancer, you're an idiot.

I've considered this too.. it's also the financial side of it that gets me thinking that way.. I don't want to put my family into (further) debt..

Try a low sugar diet (like paleo) and there are many homeopathic treatments. That being said it really depends on what type of cancer. A lot of cancer nowadays has a very high cure rate if caught in time.

My grandma refused chemo and ended up living almost 20 more yrs so I agree not to do it.

My aunt went through it all to try and live longer. She lost 80lbs and her last 2 months 1 was spent in a wheel chair, the last was spent in a hospital bed. It gave her an extra 9 months...of suffering and pain :'(.
