Making Road to Mercy: My Personal Journey with Assisted Dying

Making Road to Mercy: My Personal Journey with Assisted Dying

My mother died of liver cancer on March 11, 1987 at the age of 52. She endured nearly a decade of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and suffered greatly in the final weeks of her life. As her death neared, even administering the morphine that was meant to relieve her suffering caused her agonizing pain. (via CBC Docs #CBCFirstHand)
