Suzy Flack

Suzy Flack’s son, Andrew, died peacefully using California’s medical aid-in-dying law. Illinois does not yet allow the option.
“Andrew died peacefully because of the option of medical aid in dying in California, where he lived. I’m comforted by that. I also wish he could have had that option here in Illinois.”

Nancy Uden

Nancy Uden is living with an aggressive type of brain cancer and advocating for the option of medical aid in dying in Minnesota.
“Years before my diagnosis, I told my family that I don’t want to die an ugly death. I don’t want it for me, and I don’t want it for them. No one wants that for their loved ones.”
