One out of four deaths in America are from cancer, and every year, over half a million of our citizens lose their battle with cancer. Terminal illness has provoked a debate over assisted suicide: whether it should be allowed, and what it means to truly protect human dignity. We speak to Kristen Hanson, who lost her husband, J.J., to brain cancer last year. Plus: College students were so upset over the 2016 election results a considerable portion are at risk for developing PTSD.
We also cover these stories:
