Living Will


I Edward C Aylward, wilfully and voluntarily make known my desire that my dying not be artificially prolonged under the circumstances set forth below, and I do hereby declare:

In the absence of my ability to give directions regarding the use of life-prolonging procedures, it is my intention that this Declaration be honoured by my family and doctors, health care surrogate and friends, as the final expression of my legal right to refuse medical and surgical treatment and to accept the consequences for such refusal.

I hereby wilfully and voluntarily direct that my dying shall not be artificially prolonged, and that life-prolonging procedures shall be withheld or withdrawn from me when it has been medically determined by my doctors that I am in one of the four conditions stated below. By the term "life-prolonging procedures" I mean those medical procedures, treatments or interventions which utilise mechanical or other artificial means to sustain, restore or supplant a spontaneous vital function, and which would serve only to prolong the process of dying.

I wish to have artificial nutrition and hydration (food and water) withheld or withdrawn as well as other life-prolonging procedures under the four conditions below. I wish to be permitted to die naturally with only the administration of medication or the performance of any medical procedure deemed necessary to provide me with comfort care or to alleviate pain.

1. If at any time I should have a terminal condition from which there can be no recovery and my death is imminent.

2. If at any time I am comatose with no reasonable prospect that I will ever regain consciousness or return to a cognitive sapient state.

3. If at any time I am in a persistent vegetative state with an absence of cognitive behaviour and I am unable to communicate or interact purposefully with the environment.

4. If at any time I have a terminal condition from which there can be no recovery, but my death is not imminent, and as a result of my condition I am experiencing great pain and/or discomfort from which I can obtain no relief.

I understand the full import of this Declaration, and I am emotionally and mentally competent to make this Declaration.
