Feature interview - Daniel Diaz

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 22 September 2015

Daniel Diaz made his 29 year old wife a promise just before doctors helped her end her own life. Brittany Maynard had terminal brain cancer and the couple had moved from California to Oregon so she could legally choose when to die.

Brittany spent her last months writing and posting videos to raise awareness about death with dignity. Diaz promised his wife he would tell their story and support right to die legislation.
