    Thank you for this beautiful story from an inspiring lady – she was so clear and calm and thoughtful. We all fear pain and losing control – I’m glad she was able to find good care and such excellent nursing – death with dignity indeed. And a Mum to the end – we all try and spare our children unnecessary suffering by protecting them – but seeing him sitting by her there – I think that might have been her one mistake….I think he could have (needed to?) handle those final days with her.

    Inspiring to see someone so clear and open about what mattered & why.

    Wow, A very determined Lady that got her wish.
    Heart-breaking yet a privilege to watch, A very strong minded Lady and a extremely understanding son. ( Not sure I could remain on a course knowing my Mother was so Ill ) The sooner a cure is found for this horrible disease the better, probably not in my day. Harriet Scott may you Rest in Peace
