Bloggin About Death

I found this article front and center on cnn.com this afternoon.

http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/04/27/blog.terminal.illness/index.html?hpt=C1

It went on to talk about how people are using technology to share their journey to the end of their lives after receiving a terminal diagnosis. I'm 100% for it. It truthfully gives me a face of any given disease instead of just being a word in a book. Diseases are not black and white, straight forward like the line in a medical book. Diseases have names and faces, the people with those diseases have dreams and goals. I think sharing those goals with people is a great way for those dreams to live on with the family and friends.

Just my thought for the day.

I see a lot of value in sharing actual experiences versus clinical results (always in doctor speech too, right?).
