missash, that is an excellent question. Terminal cancer is absolute misery. From my very limited experience with it, I have found that group therapy is one of the best palliatives in that it brings peace of mind to the patient and to his family and friends.

One BIG problem I have discovered with doctors is that they focus on illness and not on quality of life. Dr. William Thomas emphasizes the importance of "A Life Worth Living." I can see no good in prolonging a life that is not worth living, neither for the patient nor for his family. This is were the group therapy is so wonderful in that it brings peace of mind.
