These stories are always sad. A young person should be able to look forward to much more. The amazing thing to me is the positive attitude of these kids. Parents can do their best to instill courage, but at some point the kid has to know his time is short. I understand it this way. Whatever your lifespan, 17 or 70, that constitutes the whole of your bodily existence. It is not short. It is complete. These chronic cases offer the possibility of understanding that completeness and accepting death as opposed to childhood accidental deaths.
