Understanding Medical Assistance in Dying webinar with Kelsey Goforth from Dying with Dignity Canada

While there are many pulmonary fibrosis patients who choose to die with dignity through a MAiD procedure, it is still pretty taboo subject among the community. 

During this webinar, Kelsey Goforth, from Dying with Dignity Canada, seeks to clarify what the procedure entails, how to go about applying for it and any other important considerations.
