Belinda Teh was 23 when she watched her mum Mareia beg the doctors to end her suffering. Mareia was in Western Australia where there is no Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) law, so she had no choice but to suffer through terminal breast cancer, dying in agony.
Your donation to Go Gentle Australia today will help keep people talking about better end-of-life choices, especially in Western Australia where a VAD law is soon to be discussed in parliament.
Please donate generously so people like Belinda’s mother don’t have to die in pain and without choice.
Belinda is walking from Melbourne to Perth to raise public awareness and funds in the hope she can spare others from the distress her mother endured. Join Belinda and help give Australia what 85% of us say we want: a choice to end suffering for the terminally ill when even the best medical care is not enough.
Donate to Go Gentle Australia here before 30 June and your gift will be tax-deductible this financial year.
Please also contact your MPs to ask them to support improved care, dignity and choice at the end of our lives.
