I would not tell anyone else that he or she should choose death with dignity. My question is: Who has the right to tell me that I don’t deserve this choice? That I deserve to suffer for weeks or months in tremendous amounts of physical and emotional pain? Why should anyone have the right to make that choice for me?
– Brittany Maynard
Compassion and Choices had a promotional luncheon in San Francisco at The Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday, April 23. There I met and had the honor of interviewing* Brittany Maynard’s husband, Daniel Diaz. Please take five minutes to watch this video. I predict Dan’s vision and compassion will touch you – perhaps even get you involved.

* The interview happened just after the luncheon. Please excuse the noise of dishes being cleared, and chairs being stacked.
