From a religious standpoint you'd be wrong. god created that disease with the express purpose of causing you that pain and suffering. As the religious will tell you, he gives you that disease in order to test you, to test your faith in him. No, he doesn't remove the disease or affliction but at least when you die you don't get re-inflicted. If you kill yourself you ultimately fail his test and then burn because of it. So at the end of the day it seems to be a case of: suffer in this life or suffer in the next. Either way god will make you suffer.
