Dignity in Dying – one couple’s story

Linda Deverell walked an extraordinary journey with her partner when, diagnosed critically ill and with 2-3 months to live, he decided to take the route of voluntary assisted dying. At the time Linda hadn’t realized that in helping him with this she was breaking the law, but insists emphatically that she’d have done the same even if she had. Since this intense, heart-breaking yet life-affirming personal experience Linda has become a staunch advocate and campaigner for voluntary assisted dying to be a choice for terminally ill people.

In this episode Linda shares her journey with exceptional openness, compassion and frankness, giving us an intimate view through a very personal window into one man’s process of dying, her role as his supporter and carer, the choices we have and don’t have, the most difficult things and the ‘magic’ of living that precious three months in the present moment, where nothing else really existed but her and him.
