This week’s dilemma:

Your twenty year-old daughter is an athlete with dreams of being picked for the Olympics in two years time.

One day, she finds a lump in her breast, and goes to the doctor. She’s diagnosed with cancer. She also discovers that the cancer has aggressively spread to her liver, and her bones. She’s then informed that the cancer is terminal.

During the following months, she’s in constant pain, and she needs constant care. She’s wasting away to nothing, and she’s suffering from depression.

One day she begs you to take her somewhere where she can take control and end her own life.

What do you do? Do you help her or not?
