Dr Cam McLaren, Oncologist & DWDV Board member has just returned from the World Cancer Congress, Geneva, where he participated in a debate “All cancer patients should have medical access to dying in all countries”.
His opponent was Professor Baroness Ilora Finlay a palliative care specialist and member of the House of Lords. Cam spoke from the heart and his compassion and empathy for those suffering at the end of life was evident throughout the entire debate. Cam’s respectful and composed delivery of his VAD knowledge and experience with cancer patients at the end of their lives was reflected in the results taken at the end of the debate in a poll.
DWDV is so proud of Cam, as all Australians should be.
