Being granted request for MAID provides relief
A Canadian family says the government’s new law on assisted dying gave their father hope in his last days struggling with a terminal disease. Now they’re honouring his wish to speak out in support of the law for other families in need. JP (Jack Poelstra) Campbell died a week ago today after a lethal injection administered by a doctor. Campbell was diagnosed in November with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a horrible progressive neurological disorder with no cure. “He did not want to live if he couldn’t walk or talk,” said his daughter.
