Undoubtedly there will be cruel words about her choices in the light of her death, and to that I say, don't judge. Dont Judge. Seriously, DONT JUDGE.
Why is there an expectation of 'alternative' medicine to fully cure or reverse cancer, yet conventional is deemed successful if a patient survives 5 years.
No, we don't get to judge a person's choice. That she spread her gospel to thousands, that she supported others who had experienced a diagnosis, and that she lived her life fully awoken, these are all things to celebrate. None of us walked in her shoes. Whatever choices she made, deserve to be respected. We each get to choose which information to follow, which advice to adhere to. It's that simple. We each take responsibility for ourselves.
I'm so grateful to have known this woman, albeit on-line. She was gracious with her time and advice.
Even in death she has taught me something valuable, that it is possible to die in peace, surrounded by love, doing what you believe in.
