Jim Stanicki: An Online Inspiration on Dying Well

Jim Stanicki is at a party, where he’s having a great time with his family and friends. But when it’s time to go, he says he has to go, and his intention is to go well.

Stanicki says it is his life that is the party.

After being diagnosed with bronchoalveolar cancer almost four years ago, Stanicki has shared the highs and lows of his journey with friends online through, a health and wellness social network that covers a wide range of health conditions, diseases, and topics.

For years, Stanicki, 60, a former software developer from Denmark, Maine, says his body was a battleground in the war on cancer. After years of treatments and little success, he has had enough.

“I realized that, for me, a day living on chemo is a day I’m not living,” said Stanicki. “I’d rather walk outside, live a life, and breathe the air for as long as I can.”
