Ottawa Now – Ontario man, MAID recipient has a new lease on life thanks to the kindness of a stranger


At 54 years old, St. Catharines resident Amir Farsoud didn’t want to die. However, after fears of losing his home started to become overwhelming, he submitted an application for medically-assisted death as an alternative to battling homelessness and never-ending back pain. Farsoud has since changed his mind thanks to a stranger who started a GoFundMe campaign and raised thousands of dollars to help him out. He joins Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now.
