Imagine what it would be like to have your entire life - your friends, your family, your interests, your loves, your hatreds, and your future - all taken away from you in a single instant. Imagine a hard, lumpy bed, a noise-filled ward, the sharp sting of needles entering your flesh at all hours of the day, the indignity of being woken up just as you are about to fall asleep for incessant vital statistics measurements, the doctors whose names you don't know (but that's okay, because they don't remember your name, either; they just remember you as the non-small cell lung carcinoma in room 6), and your own name, your very own name, and that you have just about forgotten. Then you might have some clue as to what it is like to be dying in a hospital. This is a story of survival. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
