Storyboard Text

  • Gloria Taylor was 61 years old when she began to feel tingling in her fingers.
  • She went to the doctors where she was then diagnosed with ALS.
  • Gloria immediately got to work.  She founded a Kelowna support group for people with ALS, and also fundraised for organizations that support people with ALS and their caretakers. 
  • In 2011, she filed an application to the Supreme Court of British Columbia, where she asked to be a plaintiff in the BC Civil Liberties Association's death with dignity lawsuit.
  • However, the law wasn't the only thing that stood in her way. Her ALS was acting quickly. It didn't take long for her to no longer be able to drive, walk, or sometimes even breathe on her own. 
  • Another obstacle came in the form of Will Johnston. He argued that medically-assisted death had already been provided, and that palliative care would provide the patient with relief and a relatively-painless end to their life.
