Very very sad story Q but the outcome would have been the same whatever the choice of treatment. This seems to be a sensationalised report of a story which, for whatever reasons known only to the journalists concerned, filled a few column inches. Blame the press for the hype here.....bastards (allegedly)

No, the girl might have lived a little longer with chemo. Maybe not much (maybe only a few months even), and it may not have been pleasant, but she could have read a new book or something, filled the last moments of her life with more of those little ephemera that make life more pleasant. Instead, she got robbed by her stupid bitch of a mother of precious time she could have used to do something remotely productive and enjoyable in her life. I detest the wilfully stupid, even more so when they think they're well-meaning but in reality, they're just being stupid, and cause people to die because of their well-meaning stupidity.

Anyway, onto lighter, if still mildly disturbing news...

Bloody hell, this guy is a brazen bas****, isn't he? :roll: Gross. What's wrong with asking for an autograph?

Sorry Q. I'm going to have to stop reading these shockers.
