Derek is tearful as Cyndie tries to reason with him at the UC Davis Cancer Center on Feb. 14, 2006. She and Dr. William Hall argue that Derek should have a series of radiation treatments to shrink the tumors spreading throughout his body and alleviate his pain. 'Derek, you might not make it if you don't do this,' Cyndie tells her son. Derek fires back: 'I don't care! ...Take me home. ... I'm done, Mom! Are you listening to me? I'm done!'
