A Canadian man suffering from an incurable disease claims that despite asking for home care, the medical team at an Ontario hospital would offer him only medically assisted suicide.
Roger Foley, a 42-year-old from Ontario, has cerebellar ataxia, a rare disorder that limits his neurological abilities, restricting mobility in his arms, legs, as well as the performance of other daily tasks.
Earlier this year, Foley filed a lawsuit against London Health Sciences Centre – where he has been bedridden for over two years – as well as the Canadian government and numerous health agencies.
Foley claims that he has repeatedly asked for self-directed home care, but his requests have been denied. Government-directed home care has left him with injuries and food poisoning, he says.
