Sad news. Sister-in-law has cancer of lymph glands which has not yet gotten to lungs. Don't have all the details. No operation apparently. Just chemo and radiation. Although pre-diagnosis she said she would not choose to undergo those treatments, perhaps she will change her mind. I am a true believer that it is up to the person and any person has the right to NOT do what medical science advises. My dad was a doctor and mom was a nurse so they both have a medical model background and frown somewhat on going alternative pathways. It's not that I wouldn't do medical treatments myself in certain circumstances. Just that I want the freedom to choose my path and would want each person to have that freedom apart from medical persuasion.
