Edoardo’s father (deceased from brain tumor)
" 'Dignity of life' means not having to endure the pitiful looks of other people. It means not having to ask ‘please’ or feel guilty for asking for the ‘best’ most appropriate treatment or extra attention, or for disturbing the doctor in the middle of the night. It means being able to go out occasionally for a pizza with friends or to dedicate some time to themselves, to their other children and to their partner. It means not having to beg for the right to be listened to even if they are softly-spoken or overwhelmed with grief."
