My Right To Try: It's been a long and tiresome 19 years living with ALS. During that period of time, I have risked everything and will continue to do so. I want my right to try because I have nothing to lose! I don't need Bill C-14. I want to live! I want my right to try, so I can live 5 years longer with slight improvement to the quality of my life, and those around me. I'm on my 19th year living life this way! I choose the 5 years over the 18 years. Please take this into consideration and give me the right to live.
I've dedicated the remaining years of my life, driven to accelerate access to potential life-saving treatment for Canadian ALS patients. I am an executive member of Canada's leading National ALS Charity, the Adaptive Canuck ALS Foundation (www.alscanuck.org), and a founding member of the 'Right To Try Act'.
