Northern Rivers residents in support of voluntary assisted dying were at Lismore Square today collecting signatures for a bill that’s set to be introduced into State Parliament later this year.
Cathy Barry’s brother passed away from a terminal illness a year ago, she says having the choice would have made all the difference.
“once they’ve been diagnosed, that they get that choice, and have a peaceful and dignified, and hopefully pain-free end of life, which my brother didn’t have,” Dying with Dignity stall organiser, Cathy Barry, said.
Another stall will be held at Ballina Fair next Thursday.
