Shelly's Story

Her Last Project is the extraordinary story of Dr. Shelly Sarwal, a physician from Halifax. Diagnosed with the incurable disorder multiple system atrophy, Sarwal chose to receive medical assistance in dying (MAID), legalized in 2016, and become an organ donor.

As the first person in Nova Scotia to undergo this often complicated medical journey, she dedicated the short time she had left to educating health professionals and the general public about being in control of your death and creating a meaningful legacy through organ donation.
