A Beautiful Sunset

Everald Compton's A Beautiful Sunset remarkably tells the fictional stories of 4 people from diverse backgrounds reaching the end of their lives. The reasons why they make the choice they do will hold your interest until the last page.

Everald has been an advocate of Voluntary Assisted Dying for over 50 years, and has been of great assistance to us in campaigning for VAD laws in Queensland.

A portion of the proceeds will go to DWDQ as fundraising.

Letting Go

Letting Go is an important and timely introduction to, and discussion of, the kinds of decisions that individuals, families, and medical personnel face in a medical crisis. It shows us how to start thinking about our end-of-life stage before we get there; how to make an advanced-care plan that will help people make decisions on our behalf; and how we can maintain our dignity and autonomy for as long as possible.

Queen of Dying

"If you’ve ever lost someone, or watched a medical drama in the last 15 years, you’ve probably heard of The Five Stages of Grief. They’re sort of the world’s worst consolation prize for loss. But last year, we began wondering… Where did these stages come from in the first place?

Turns out, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. But the story is much, much more complicated than that. Those stages of grieving? They actually started as stages of dying. After learning that, producer Rachael Cusick tumbled into a year-long journey through the life and work of the incredibly complicated and misunderstood woman who single-handedly changed the way all of us face dying, and the way we deal with being left behind.

This episode was reported and produced by Rachael Cusick, with production help from Carin Leong."
