not really my point and not that you're exactly wrong either. its just that without doctors pushing chemo down a frail old ladies throat, who may not understand how tough the treatment is, she may have had a few more peaceful twilight years ahead which i would have gladly granted her.

maybe, but in the end it's the the doctors who take the decision to use the treatment. her reasoning was probably "i want to live 20 more years and this will help". when you're 80, the mindset shouldn't be to use more resources. Too late now unfortunately, but nothing to be extremely sad about. Remember the good times, and celebrate death, as it is part of life!
