Assisted suicide

I read your article on the front page of the Exmouth Journal last week about assisted suicide.

I can completely understand Andrew Barnes’ feelings. I have just spent four weeks in Dorchester Hospital, after having a kidney removed because of a tumour.

I then spent four weeks in Blandford Hospital to improve my health as, at that time, I had nowhere to live.

I have now moved to Somerset and am awaiting an appointment at Yeovil Hospital for chemotherapy.

I feel very frightened about cancer and the unknown and am 100 per cent for assisted suicide, which should be allowed here in England.
