    I am so glad to learn that your son was able to find a doctor that would talk to him about end of life options. No one did that for our son who died from melanoma at age 28. He was still waiting for a cure on the night that he died in the hospital. Like your son, he was very much a live in the moment person. Cancer patients should follow your son’s example. They should not rely on the physician to speak with them about the prognosis. Many physicians will not share that information with the patient. The patient has to ASK them for it and make it clear that they want to know. Thank you, Danny, for sharing your story.

    (question: when you wrote “a year ago” did you mean “the year before”?)

    So sorry for your losses. it’s so powerful Danny how you are able to tell their stories, then crystallize their wishes into a very simple framework, a litmus test that can guide those of us that may find ourselves in these situations in the future. thank you for sharing, Danny.

    Knowing Mike was a privilege. I’m not sure if his wisdom and clear thinking was innate, acquired, or our gift to him by making him you son through love and acceptance. What a brilliant and wise man he was.
    Ever hear from or know about his GF (wife?) I hope her life is wonderful, she stuck showing courage and honesty beyond her years. I’m sure it set her on a course of doing what she thinks she should, as we do.
    Some actually accomplish that – You are such a person Love, Bob Doherty
