‘This is why we are fighting for the right to die’: Family release harrowing pictures of MS-suffering mother in her final days of ‘torture’

  • Floria Lormier, 68, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 20
  • Her condition deteriorated over the past 2 years – leaving her in constant pain 
  • Her family say she was just ‘skin and bones’ before passing away in December
  • They hope the pictures will convince politicians to change the law on euthanasia 


The family of a 68-year-old woman who suffered right up until her death are sharing her story in an attempt to fight for the right to die.

Flora Lormier, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) when she was 20 but her condition significantly worsened over the past two years.

Left in constant pain, she had begged her husband and daughter to help her die multiple times.

The debilitating condition had blighted her body, causing her to be paralysed from the neck down.

In hope of bringing about a change to the law on euthanasia, her husband, Tom, and daughter, Tracey Taylor, have released pictures of her in her final days.

Showing her in a fragile state, she was left as just a pile of skin and bones before she eventually passed away naturally in December.
