Loved into Being - Book Launch and Panel Discussion on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)

Join us at Goods & Co Market, 7:00pm on Wednesday March 29th to celebrate this incredible story and have a local discussion about a national issue- Medical Assistance in Dying and its precursors- aging, illness, caregiving and grief.

Loved Into Being: Reflections on Stroke and Being Indestructible is a memoir written by Jill Bodak, a Thunder Bay local that follows her and her father through his three years of living post-stroke. This story is a portrait of a person who is fighting to recover enough of himself to end his life on his own terms.

On December 6th, 2022, Bill Bodak exercised his right to access Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), at home, surrounded by family. The night before his death, hundreds of friends, former students and family members gathered outside his home to light candles and wish him safe passage.

Since his death, this story has reached hundreds of readers, been featured on CBC's Superior Morning Show and a collection of podcasts, including Thunder Bay's "Disrupting Death" show with Dr. Kathy Kortes-Miller.

This evening Dr. Kathy Kortes-Miller, Dr. Katrina Ward and Jill Bodak will gather to discuss this particular story, and the implications it has for the larger discussions happening across our country with regards to caregiving, end-of-life choices and how to embrace death as a triumph when we can, instead of a failure.

If you've read the book, come chat about it and why it spoke to you. If you haven't read the book, come get one at Loud Women Collective and join in this heartfelt and deeply needed conversation.

The evening will include warm company, good conversation, a chance to ask questions and also buy the book! All proceeds from this project are donated to Dying with Dignity Canada in memory of Bill.

A long-time member of the Ontario Network of Women in Engineering (ONWiE), Mary also continues to energize the University of Waterloo’s work around women and gender-diversity in engineering. Additionally, Mary collaborates with Waterloo Engineering Outreach team to create and deliver award-winning programming to youth in Waterloo Region.

Mary held the role of Associate Director First Year Engineering (2011-2021), where she supported first-year engineering students in their transition from high school to university and is known for her compassionate and supportive approach to help students adjust to the rigorous academic and social demands of university. Mary is a Fellow of the Canadian Engineering Education Association (CEEA-ACÉG) and the 2018 recipient of the Ron Britton Engineering Education Vanguard Award.
