The Old Testament observes that “all flesh is as grass.” Religions have addressed the question of how one should live with the awareness of inevitable death. Often the answer has been based upon the vision of a life beyond death.

  • A person who had the cancer and died 10 years later of the cancer would contribute an event, a death due to the cancer, having also contributed 10 person-years of survival time. A 90 % cancer specific survival at 10 years would mean that 90 % of patients had not died from their cancer, while 10 % had died from their cancer (Kaplan, 1958). Calculation of cause-specific survival is especially important when studying diseases with a favorable prognosis, as is the case at hand, where the patients live long enough to be exposed to other causes of death....
