Help me decide:
Should one save for retirement when they have an incurable form of cancer with a high mortality rate?
There are a few different ways to look at this situation.
I could think on the bright side: I may live until I am 85 years old. I should be saving my money in a 401(k), IRA or other retirement account to have something to lean back on after my working days are over. And even if I do die before I can cash-out, the money will go to Brett.
Or, I could ‘Live for today!’ There are no sure things in this life–including life–so why stash money away when I can save it up and go on a fantastic vacation with my husband every year? And Disneyland every eight months or so? And also go to baseball games? Ultimately, I want experiences and memories with the person I love the most.
