Terminally Ill Man Becomes Leading Right-to-Die Advocate

Kurt Perry suffers from a rare disorder that impairs his ability to walk, think and occasionally makes it nearly impossible for him to breathe. At times the pain from the disorder is so severe he's considered suicide, but instead he's found a reason to live - supporting the right-to-die.

"I believe that in the time I have left in this world, I want to use that time to help promote and maintain the rights of people to live, and die, with dignity," said Perry in an Associated Press interview.
