Ray Ealingworth surprised everyone on November 29. He is suffering from esophageal cancer and is undergoing radiotherapy. But the 69-year-old was shocked to learn that the former England captain, who won the Ashes on Australian soil, had been given the chance to die if his treatment did not improve significantly. Ealingworth has seen his wife die this year after a long battle with cancer. Ealingworth said he could not bear the pain.
He was afraid that suffering from the disease would lead to a condition in which the desire to die with the help of others would arise. But in the UK he does not have the opportunity. Ealingworth did not have to suffer so much. The former England captain said goodbye to the month before he wanted to die in peace.
He left within a month wanting to die
His county team Yorkshire confirmed the news. “We are deeply saddened to learn that Ray Ealingworth has passed away,” Yorkshire said in a statement on Twitter. My condolences to Ray’s family and to all of Yorkshire’s loved ones in general. “
He was chairman of the England Select Committee from 1994 to 1996. Ealingworth also coached the team in the 1995-96 season.
In an interview with The Telegraph on November 29, Ealingworth said he hoped the death penalty would be passed with the help of others. Went from one hospital to another. Got a lot of trouble. I would rather die in peace. I believe in death with the help of others.
