A fate worse than death - Sandeep Divekar

Published on Jan 25, 2014 Sandeep Divekar's wife of two decades, Julie, was diagnosed with Locked-In Syndrome after a stroke--a condition in which one is fully conscious, but can do nothing more than blink one's eyes. In this deeply passionate talk, Divekar shares his struggles to pull Julie off life support and stop all futile treatment so she could die with dignity. Finally, Divekar compels us to talk about death and ask ourselves how we want to die.
