Miguel dies without assistance in Puerto Rico

Miguel Carrasquillo died on Sunday 5 June 2016 in his native Puerto Rico. He was 35. A Chicago resident, Miguel was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive, deadly brain tumor, in 2012. Despite bravely enduring excruciatingly painful treatments to try to cure his cancer, it spread throughout his body. In March he recorded a bilingual video urging lawmakers nationwide to give terminally ill adults the option of medical aid in dying.
