The Choice Not to Aggressively Treat

Diane Rehm’s radio show recently presented a powerful, personal story of end-of-life decision-making. In short, Amy Berman told of opting not to aggressively treat her Stage 4 breast cancer, but to rely significantly on palliative care to enhance what time she has left. The interview is highly recommended.
Below are links to stories that take the interview a bit further.

From Amy Berman, and from palliative physician Diane Meier
