A cancer patient’s last wish

“I smiled, put the lamb curry in front of her, and instructed her granddaughter on how much time to heat it up in the microwave.

Val wasn’t in a condition where she could have a long conversation with me, but she knew exactly what was going on. I saw her eyes smile for a moment, tearing through the pain otherwise displayed all over her face. She didn’t say much, but just enough when she said, “God bless you.”

I left her house wondering when somebody is given the death sentence, they are asked about their last wish. We seldom do that in medicine. Should we?”

Farhan S. Imran is a hematology-oncology physician who blogs at Did I Ask?

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “A cancer patient’s last wish.”
