Anne Crawford is weighing her options.
At 74, she recently underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time in two decades. And while the Vancouver resident is still fighting the disease, she wants to know she has the final say on how and when her suffering will end.
Anne is the subject of “Letting Go for Dear Life,” a gripping new radio documentary by Alison Kroeker and Travis Prased, two journalism students at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Released this month, the clip profiles Crawford’s battle with cancer and uses her story to launch into a broader discussion about physician assisted dying in Canada.
