Cancer victim to die on his terms - Parksville Qualicum Beach News

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

You have to have the capacity to consent and you have to sign a document on the date of the procedure,” said Dr. Tanja Daws of Courtenay Medical Clinic. “The patient can only receive the procedure if they know what it means. They can’t get it if they are in a coma or if they’re confused.”The process itself involves the injection of a sedative that puts the patient into a deep sleep. Then another drug is injected that will stop respiration and the heartbeat.Just two days before his scheduled procedure, Ness appeared outwardly healthy. He is not bed-ridden and is not connected to oxygen or an intravenous drip. The only outward sign of his illness is a persistent cough in the one lung he he was left with after undergoing a pneumonectomy last November.The removal of his left lung initially left him feeling much better, Ness said, and he and Gloria were even planning a “bucket list” trip to Machu Picchu this coming winter.But his cough returned earlier this year, and a CT scan showed the cancer had returned.“The doctors said if the cancer does come back (following surgery), it will come back as stage 4 cancer and it will be extremely aggressive,” Ness said. “That’s where I am now.“You look at me, and people say, ‘Ed, you look so healthy’, but this cancer is raging through my body right now. I can feel it. It feels like there’s something alive inside me and it’s moving really quickly.”In addition to taking charge of the time and nature of his death, Ness has also been hands-on with the administrative details. He has written his own epitaph, which he will read to the family and friends gathered around on Tuesday afternoon. The couple has already completed funeral arrangements. He is also writing his own obituary, and has filled out an adjustment of will and transferred assets to Gloria’s name.“He’s doing it all himself. He’s always been a take-charge person; nobody else can do anything quite as well as Ed can,” Gloria said with a laugh.“It’s nice to have the time in advance to choose your death,” Ness said. “Everyone has loose ends they would like to take care of. I’ve had time to do all those things.”Dr. Daws said she could not speak to specific patient cases, but said Tuesday’s planned gathering at the Ness home is a sort of pre-memorial common in Death with Dignity cases.“There is always a certain amount of sadness, of course, but it’s good to have a positive memory attached to the patient,” said Daws. “Often, the patient will make a small speech thanking family and friends and saying they’re ready to die. And the family and friends can tell the patient how loved they are.“It makes it, in a bizarre way, beautiful. And it can leave people with a far better memory than a prolonged battle in ICU or a battle with cancer in hospice or at home.”Ness took a slightly less philosophical tone to describe the planned gathering.“When you go to funerals, you talk to this box here,” he said, gesturing toward an imaginary coffin. “In this case, they can say it to my face. And I can respond to it in the same way.”In advance of his procedure, Ness said, he was offered...
