I lost my husband to cancer. I’m forever thankful he didn’t choose assisted suicide.
Description: In summer 2016 we spoke with JJ Hanson, who was battling a deadly form of brain cancer but rejected the idea of assisted suicide. On December 30, as snowflakes fell outside, he took his last breath surrounded by his family. He lived with cancer for three and a half years - three years longer than his doctors had predicted. We talk with Kristen Hanson about why she is thankful he decided against a "death with dignity."
