Terminal Life from the Author: Richard Torregrossa. Luke Stark, a Special Forces veteran, returns home from his second tour in Afghanistan to learn that his wife has been mysteriously murdered and his son has disappeared. These tragedies, in addition to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, push him over the edge. He has also been diagnosed with an incipient form of cancer, but he forgoes treatment, a decision that is akin to a slow suicide. Although he lives in a shelter, he wears an impeccable suit, an eccentric characteristic that sets him apart from his fellow down-and-outers and just about everybody else. He is nicknamed, somewhat ironically, The Suited Hero. Revenge and the search for his son spark a kind of rebirth in him that is as cathartic as it is brutal. This leads him into the dangerous world of illegal prescription drug distribution, where nobody in this gripping mystery crime thriller— not even some family members—is who they appear to be.

A Life Terminal from the Author: Jane Doe. A Life Terminal is a novel in the medical setting, which follows the comical escapades of characters from vastly different worlds. They range from the eccentric walks of life - a senior citizen prostitute to an austere billionaire - to the very ordinary. We share in their joy and grief, courage and foolishness, as they putter through the clutter of everyday life, cope with grotesque rules, and eventually hurtle toward their inevitable fates. As in life, some of these characters disappear from view following a brief random encounter; others become integral players in the story. They travel separate haphazard journeys but, as they navigate together through the illogical hurdles of our healthcare system, their lives become oddly intertwined. Beneath their differences, they share common hopes, fears and vulnerabilities, living out the same story over and over again. Jane Doe was an ordinary person born into an average family. She grew up in a small town in a working class neighborhood. Odd circumstances brought her into the city, where she started a new life. She became a doctor, which gave her the opportunity to enter the worlds of people from diverse backgrounds, of various stations of life. She was allowed to share with them some of their innermost thoughts and most difficult moments. Inspired by their common plight, she wrote a book A Life Terminal. Then she disappeared into the obscurity from whence she came.

It is a book about hope for terminal illness that comes from the power that is higher than everything.It brings people closer to God,to be able to communicate in trust with him in everything. It takes away humiliation of death that comes from terminal illness; it brings hope to those who have lost it because of troubles. It will bring healing, mend brokenness, and bring wholeness in families and it helps people to be able to give glory to God because of his mighty deeds. It teaches that praising God as our protector pleases him and he continues to pour out his favour and revelation upon us. It teaches the importance of righteousness, faith and love in humanity. "God touched me, healed me, and made me whole again." God extends his mercy in our lives and call us for his Kingdom, to be his vessels of his glory and honour. When we are weak, he becomes stronger. Readers will take heart and be comforted and assured about God's love. It helps us to combat Spiritual Warfares and teaches how to put on the full armour of God. Our truthful God cares and never tires in our lives. It is all about God's divine purpose in our lives. God is real, he moves and is aware of the struggles of this world. There is hope for terminal illness and that hope is anchored on the Cross, on the power of the blood of Jesus that purchased us. Isaiah 53:4-5 "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."

Terminal Sedation Euthanasia In Disguise from the Author: Torbjörn Tännsjö. TERMINAL SEDATION DURING THE 1990s During the 1990s a discussion took place in scholarly journals concerning a measure within palliative care that had earlier attracted little attention, to wit, the sedation of dying patients. There seem to have been two main reasons why the practice came under debate. On the one hand, some people felt that, when palliative medicine had advanced and methods to control symptoms had improved, it was no longer justified to sedate the patients in a manner that had often been done in the past. The system of 1 terminal sedation had turned into ‘euthanasia in disguise’ or ‘slow euthanasia’. On the other hand, there were people sympathetic to the recently established Dutch system of euthanasia, people who agreed that terminal sedation was euthanasia in disguise, but who felt that, if it is not objectionable to sedate dying patients at their request, then why should it not be permitted for doctors to kill dying patients at 2 request? From these two motives a discussion about terminal sedation gained momentum. The intention behind this anthology is to continue and deepen this discussion. The anthology starts off with a chapter where an influential article from the 1990s has been reprinted.
