David Pieper got involved with Dying with Dignity after playing a major role in campaigning for marriage equality in Australia. He has been passionate about the right to voluntary euthanasia since childhood when his mother asked that if she were ever diagnosed with bowel cancer, she would like him to help her end her life. His mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer in her 50s, and subsequently died a long painful death from it. David is committed to ensuring that that other people have the choice to avoid the suffering his mother endured. David stood as an upper house candidate for Voluntary Euthanasia Party in the last NSW Election. In his professional life David led community-based campaigning for access to the cure for hepatitis C in Australia.
