Nearing End Of Life From Breast Cancer

What To Do If You Choose To End Life Early

« Previous


We do not recommend ending life early. However, we consider it to be our mandate to provide unbiased information about all aspects of living with breast cancer so you can make an informed choice.

If you are thinking of ending life early, consider whether it is because of depression. Depression frequently accompanies end of life. Depression can be treated. Ending life early may be a permanent solution to a temporary problem. 

  • If you want to and can end life yourself: a how-to book is available. It is called Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying by Derek Humphry. It is available in most book stores and on line.
  • Assisted Suicide is only legal in a few states in the United States and in several countries in Europe. For more information, see Assisted Suicide.
  • It is worth noting that it is common in the US for the timing of deaths to be negotiated between a patient and/or his or her family, and a doctor. Speak privately, and openly, with your doctor.
