Kylie Monaghan face of S.A VAD Bill

Kylie Monaghan face of S.A VAD Bill

SA politicians will soon vote on the Voluntary Euthanasia Bill and a campaign to pass this bill, backed by television and radio personality Andrew Denton, will launch in Adelaide this week. The campaign is aimed at urging politicians to look beyond the impersonal nature of the bill and remind them that their vote affects real people. Port Pirie woman Kylie Monaghan, 35, is the public face of the campaign and features in a 90-second video about her battle with advanced cancer. At 29 years old, Kylie Monaghan was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer and over the next six months, she had a mastectomy, as well as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. But sadly, the deadly disease spread to her liver and bones. “I got involved because personally, with my journey, it can affect me,” Ms Monaghan said.
