Abstract
Discusses coming to terms with the disease itself; managing pain; planning funerals; making peace with loved ones; deciding about terminal care; and learning what the final experience of death is like. Although the author argues the pros and cons of euthanasia and belief in an afterlife, her obvious bias in favour of both may be off-putting to some readers.
