This family members brought their parents to visit me in the evening of 27 Sept 2010.
They brought a basket of fruits, a small surprise for me. Normally, I do not expect anything from visitors.
The71-year old father was dignosed with prostate cancer. He did not speak much even though I encouraged him to do so. His sons and daughter-in-law did the talking.
We exchanged views on various aspects of cancer and its treatment. My role is to exchange health informaton. The decision is theirs.
The good news is the family members are willing to assist their parents and themselves to reclaim good health.
This is a good sign.
If a cancer patient has the will power to adjust his diet and his way of life, he/she has a great chance of living a longer life.
The same thing applies to the other family members who are not in good health.
