Happy to sign. My Dad died of cancer and I wish he could have had better care during those last few months.

Thank you so very much for this post and the petition. I lost my mother and my brother to cancer, and I know the importance of palliative care and having people who are trained to provide hospice care.

Palliative care is wonderful not just for cancer patients, but other diseases as well. Hopefully this will help to inform many people what it is all about, so that many may ask for it. Thanks for sharing. Petition signed.

None of it matters when the patient is not given the option of voluntary euthanasia. Just because one patient wants to go through expensive, painful procedures that disfigure doesn't mean everyone else has to endure all that.

A timely video since many people die of cancer these days. One can even get cancer at age 90 or more. Palliative care ensures less suffering for many and passing legislation to ensure less suffering is something that will ease the pain of both the person with cancer and the helplessness of families and friends watching.
