Hello. What is it like to die in Buffalo?

well i know what it is like to live in Buffalo while dieing... of freaky funky cancer.

the the, remember that group?

Well I am in Hospice where people come if they are terminally ill. My gosh I am terminal. I have colon cancer but i do not want to die. I am 42 years young. I just ate pizza and chicken wings after being a vegetarian off and on since 1992. Next to me was a man who just lost his brother to death and he was arranging for the cremation. Death is new to me. Kathy died last year on May 29th. I do not want my mother to suffer so i have to  beat this cancer thing. it is a strange foe but how best to face it?
