If nothing else works in the end, in the next few years this may be a life saver for all of us who need it.

Suspended animation. They are in clinical trials and said the hope it will be to market in 2 years. Watch the video.

Hi ChrisR,
 
Thanks for this interesting concept! The speed at which prostate cancer research is progressing they may have to find a way of keeping us suspended for 50 years or more to be able to cure us. When we wake up and find that everyone has long gone to a better place, we wonder if the long sleep was worth it. Seriously so, this sounds like fantastic idea for many emergency patience.
All the best to you.

Yeap that is futuristic and it is interesting to look at everything and posting such is interesting atleast as education type of thing, I would say don't hold your breath right now, and it would need FDA approval and based upon the cash flow of the current system alot of companies are saying 'it is perfect for us right now-don't rock our boat' the average cancer patient is worth maybe $250,000+ to the systems, is kind of what is thrown around as talk, maybe even higher...anyway very lucrative and profittable..except to patients whom are not wealthy which is the majority of us, especially on this forum. Not to mention can they even perfect such science so you survive thawing processes and in what condition? This might be a reality someday who knows, we are able to invent things others thought were impossible.

Hey, how would the friendly IRS deal with people whom want suspended animation...how do you tax them...or how high is the tab...when you are brought back? Is a loop-hole...how do you get a guarantee you would be brought back  (LOL)?
Imagine how unconnected one would feel 20-30 yrs. being re-introduced to society and that shock alone might kill you (LOL)?

I dont believe there is a thawing process.  They use a gas to suspend you and then they revive by just letting you breath air again.   As for the IRS i'll take my chances...2 to 3 years away.  We've heard that before all  the time about things.
