  2. Hello Peter, the Port Macquarie Group of Dying with Dignity NSW came into being 6 June 2014 🙂 We are small (60 supporters on database and growing every day) but very energetic! Your petition has been circulated via email and will be included in all our mail outs and letterbox drops. You are truly an humanitarian hero and incredibly brave sharing so much of yourself for the benefit of everyone. Blessings to you and your family 🙂
