Not Fade Away

This short novel was a phenomenal read. Peter Barton was a wealthy entrepreneur whom was diagnosed with cancer at a young age. All his life he worried about dying early from cardiovascular disease like his father and grandfather- he made sure to exercise and maintain his health. Nevertheless, his uncontrollable fate of a short life was played out by a terminal illness. I suggest reading this book because it goes against the norm of our death denying culture. It embraces the importance of life and death. It really does an amazing job of putting you in the shoes of someone benefiting from palliative care and how he made the most of his last moments. Like most he did not want to die in a hospital and he made sure his life ended like he wanted to with the help of his doctors. I promise this book will be worth the read! šŸ™‚
