In 1990, Dr. Jack Kevorkian was just beginning his work in the death with dignity movement. Janet Adkins, who made a choice to die after being diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease, was his first assisted suicide patient.
This week, Susan Clevenger publishes Dying to Die – The Janet Adkins Story. (Amazon) Clevenger interviewed and recorded stories from Janet’s family and closest friends, transcribed TV videos and read countless magazine and news stories. Her source material included Janet’s personal journals and letters from family and friends that the family had saved over the years.
