When someone is diagnosed with a terminal illness, life takes on new meaning, and the ultimate question of how to die becomes imminent. In 2007, Don Colburn, then a health reporter at The Oregonian, shared the intimate story of one woman's journey with terminal cancer, and whether or not to use Oregon's doctor-assisted suicide law. Today Colburn reflects on his own journey with Lovelle Svart, a woman determined to live to the end. Don Colburn is a long-time health reporter and poet.
