The difficult challenges faced by those who are terminally ill can be overwhelming. The contradictions to be found in their situation are a source of stress, as they weigh the fear of dying against the welcome relief of the end of their painful and debilitating symptoms. Doctor Is In: Living Fully Until Death reveals the thoughts and concerns of three patients, who candidly discuss their worries about imminent death. By organizing what remains of their lives, they exert some measure of control over many uncertainties. Through the exploration of spiritual avenues, they find strength and encouragement.
