Re "UCD surgery leaves family bereft" (Page A1, Feb. 10): Maybe that experimental procedure at the UC Davis Medical Center did not help, but one thing that I can assure you is that you will not have in your conscience I could have done something and I did not. Yet now the doctors know that it did not work out, but that's the only way to find out the possibilities. In the future it may be. If I was with a terminal disease, I would give up my body for an experiment, which would be my way of contributing in saving lives in the future.
