Someone has cancer: Is it the right thing to do?

 Alex Eastman (@alex)8 years, 1 month ago

Someone who I was neighbors with for two years was just diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Sadly, I know that sometimes doctors are wrong, more frequently than ever here where I live.

I was thinking about placing a note in their mail, telling them to seek alternative treatments, call Cancer Treatment Center of America (I highly reputable place) and to not give up hope… But could this cause more problems for them? Is it cruel to tell someone who is dying they have hope? I mean, sure this could save the man’s life, but what if it doesn’t? What if he dies after perhaps believing me, going to all these doctors and racking up a huge fortune in bills for his wife?

Should I? I think I should, but I still have a little doubt.
Any advice is welcome. Even things I should add to the letter would be welcome.

Real medicine is natural medicine. or at least I believe so.

@alex why let someone die without hope? Sending them a letter would be a righteous thing to do. I don’t know about lung cancer, but I know people with tumors can actually decrease the size of the tumor with hemp oil. Most people with tumors seek chemo which can (if the odds are in your favor) treat the cancer, but in reality is worse for your body. Natural treatments are usually the most effective, so I would suggest doing some research and sending your neighbor a hopeful letter :)

Thank you very much. I will think about it. I have the letter printed out and I’ll drive by tomorrow. I may drop it off in their mail, but I’ll have to think about it.

@alex, it’s a patient’s own decision to make, but you would not be at fault for making that option known to them. There is hope for them, but be truthful and don’t do anything you have no business doing (e.g., counseling them about their prognosis).

Some “alternative” therapies have shown to be promising, but there’s also a lot of BS out there. For the last freaking time, people, stop jumping to inappropriate conclusions with insufficient evidence. The human body is a different environment, and you have to consider many other factors (e.g., how a substance is absorbed).
