Make Sure You’re Getting a Return on Your Investment
Twice a month, I lead a support group for folks with advanced cancer. Our discussions focus on living with cancer despite an uncertain future. Recently the conversation shifted toward what purchases should and shouldn’t be made. One person has a very old car, but she wasn’t certain if a new car would be a prudent purchase, given her prognosis. Another person needed a new winter coat and decided she would get the best one she could afford. It was interesting to listen to how decisions are made when the variables of a short life span or expensive treatments are included. They humorously called it the “return on investment” discussion.
