Will to live

The will to live is a psychological force to fight for survival, particularly when one's life is threatened by an injury or disease such as cancer. Some physicians believe that it plays an important role in one's chances of survival. There are significant correlations between the will to live and existential, psychological, social, and, to a lesser degree, physical sources of distress.
