Maia- Time to Die

New Finnish TV Series & Documentary

Time to Die by Olof Films in Helsinki is a new 6-part TV series (airing in Finland each Sunday through Oct/Nov on YLE) & a feature documentary (scheduled for global release in 2021) that follows the very different end of life experiences of four unique individuals.
  • Albert opts for euthanasia at home in Amsterdam
  • After palliative care, Inga dies badly at home in Finland
  • Maia in New Mexico, USA has booked a one-way trip to Pegasos
  • Hannu gets the PPeH & his wife dies peacefully at home in Finland
  • Philip introduces the Sarco for a glimpse of a self-determined future
Time to Die was universally serenaded in the Finnish national media after the first episode aired on 12 October. The series has created a much-needed and very positive public conversation on voluntary euthanasia where even priests agree that seriously ill people should have the right to control how their lives come to an end.

Letter from Ireland with Tom Curran

October 2020

Listen Now

Tom's late partner, former University lecturer (in women's studies) Marie Flemming, suffered for many years from MS. She died in 2013.

In 2012, Marie and Tom took a landmark legal case to Ireland's High Court and then to the Supreme Court on appeal. Marie argued that the state discriminated against her because she could not suicide (due to the increasing paralysis brought about by MS).

The Irish Parliament is now examining a new Dying with Dignity Bill.

This Podcast documents Tom's journey with Marie and his instrumental role in advocating for a law for people with a 'life-limiting' condition.

No 1 Bestseller - An Act of Love

Now Available - Exit Bookstore

Marie Fleming became a household name in Ireland with her trail-blazing campaign for the right to die with dignity, when she took a landmark case against the Irish State to lift the ban on assisted suicide. But behind the Multiple Sclerosis sufferer's brave fight lay a remarkable life story known to few.

From her young years growing up in Donegal, as she struggled to keep her family together after her mother left, to her battle to keep her own baby - born when Marie was still a teenager - to her later quest for education and self-betterment against the odds, An Act of Love is an unforgettable story of ambition, of sorrow, and of life lived to the full. In it, she also describes coming to terms with MS and the ordeal of her later court case.

Completed just before Marie's death in late 2013, this is a story of the power of abiding love.

'There are books that should be written and books that need to be written and then there are books like An Act of Love, that push and fight their way out into the world against all the odds' - Anne Enright, Booker Prize Winner (The Gathering)
