The Body That Is Left: Gerda Talks About Assisted Suicide
The latest short film that RadioWest made of how my family and I deal with my dementia. This one is about planning my assisted death with my family.
“When the time is right, Gerda Saunders is going to take her own life. Gerda has a progressive form of dementia and we’ve been following her during this process. Of course, identifying the right time is going to be difficult, but she knows her family will support her when she makes the call. Life is over, she told us, when you stop having the ability to make your mark in the world.”

Oh my friend, my dear one. However, your mark in the world isn’t going away for the next eighty years , anyway. Probably longer. Longer than most of us dream of. xoxoxoxo
