A successful young lawyer, Lecretia Seales met and fell in love with Matt Vickers in 2003. In Lecretia's Choice, Matt tells the story of their life together, and how it changed when his fiercely independent wife was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour. The death she faced - slow, painful, dependent was completely at odds with how she had lived her life. Lecretia wanted to die with dignity, but the law denied her that choice. With her characteristic spirit, she mounted a challenge in New Zealand's High Court, but as the battle raged, Lecretia's strength faded.
In 2015 Matt Vickers supported his wife, Lecretia Seales, in her campaign to gain the right to choose how she died. Lecretia's Choice is his first book.
