Even people with insurance have free will. I've known a number of
people who have had the surgery but not the chemo or radiation for
their various cancers (and others who have skipped all treatment
because they were already cooked when their disease was diagnosed).
It's not necessary to park your brain regardless of how much insurance
you have or don't have.
I could trot out several examples of diseases less dire than cancer
for which a drastic cure was offered and a more sensible one was
chosen, but I suppose my having attended a public school for 8 years
has destroyed my mind, and I'm probably not capable of seeing the deep
meaning here. :)
