Her Last Project is the extraordinary story of Dr. Shelly Sarwal, a physician from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), an incurable disease, Shelly chose to undergo the recently legalized Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) procedure and become an organ donor.

The documentary serves to honour Dr. Sarwal’s wish to bring valuable experience and insight about MAID and organ donation to the clinical community, to patients and to the general public.  Through this film and other medical curriculum and professional training, the producers are helping fulfill Dr. Shelly Sarwal’s final wish to document and share her story. 

Her Last Project teaches us to embrace and accept dying as an essential part of our lives and to stimulate greater conversation around organ and tissue donation as a part of quality end-of-life care.
