but decides that it isn't worth fighting or that they just dont want to live- is it true that this will aggravate the illness or that they will most likely just die - instead of "clinging to life" so to speak like other's who do want to live? How important do you think the mind is when it comes to illness and things like this?

I think the power of will is very strong on the human body, and some stories are truly extraordinary. It is pretty amazing what our bodies can do, and how a positive outlook can have. Take Michael Douglas and his cancer. He had stage iv cancer which is pretty well the end of the line, but he kept a positive outlook and "beat" it. We know very little about the brain, and I believe a positive outlook can accomplish very great things.

It is a complex effect. Having a positive look on the outcome, seems to speed up the healing process. The how and why are quite a mystery though.
