Peter Short belongs to my new extended family. He is age 57 and in January of this year he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given eight months to live. He has now exceeded that time frame and hopefully will keep on going for a long time to come yet.
Peter would be forgiven for throwing in the towel, feeling sorry for himself and bemoaning ‘why me’. But he is an incredible man and has devoted the last few months of his life to lobbying politicians and promoting his Dying With Dignity cause.
Go to Peter’s blog Tic Toc Tic Toc dying to a killer clock, to find out more about this very important cause and sign his petition to change the laws in Australia relating to Dying With Dignity.
