Re: You're alive, ya dope...

..that’s a callous thing to write.
..this guy has put up with a lot of suffering – sure he wanted to live, but i don’t doubt there’s an altruistic element to his decision. people like this who volunteer for these risky and painful procedures are contributing a lot to the advancement of medical science – and they and their families often pay a painful price.
