Description
Carol Loving's son Nick went from athletic and high-spirited to debilitated and depressed within two years of being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease. Unable to walk, feed himself or speak clearly, Nick begged his mother to help him die. Reaching the most heart-wrenching decision of her life, Carol turned to Dr. Jack Kevorkian for help. My Son, My Sorrow is an eloquent contribution to the debate over "the right to die, " which only someone who has lived through the experience with a loved one can provide.
