Article / The following is an excerpt from askfrfrancis.org. Fr. Francis Ching, CC answers tough questions about the Catholic faith. Question: Is it a sin for someone to forgo treatment for cancer, if statistically, the chances of survival with treatment is extremely low and the patient does not want to go through the pain of ineffective chemo? If someone raises this idea to a loved one to consider, would that be a sin?
We all have a choice when Jesus invites us to enter into his Kingdom.
