Fight to Stay Conscious?

I don't imagine it would make much of a difference. There's already a fair bit of research suggesting that "fighting spirit" makes no difference in the progression of cancer, and I can't imagine why unconsciousness would be any different. When the biochemical processes supporting consciousness are disrupted, then your "will" makes no difference because those same processes were underlying your capacity to have a "will".
