In this powerful and heart-wrenching talk, her now-widower Matt shares Lecretia's story and the reasons why he continues to campaign for consensual physician-assisted dying for terminally ill patients: carrying, as he says, “a responsibility to ensure that Lecretia’s personal sacrifice wasn’t for nothing."

In 2011, Lecretia Seales was diagnosed with a brain tumour – and in 2015, in the final stages of her life and with her husband Matt Vickers by her side, she went to the High Court seeking the choice to receive assistance to die from her GP.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
