Howard Sattler is moving to palliative care

The West Australian is reporting (subscription required) that veteran WA talkback host, Howard Sattler, is moving into palliative care.

The former 6PR announcer, who has PSP/Steele Richardson Syndrome, said yesterday that his neurologist has given him the devastating news that he only has months to live, and Howard says “It was inevitable. I have reached the stage …that I need palliative care.”

He told the West Australian that even with no cure in sight, he won’t be giving up the fight and has urged for support for voluntary euthanasia laws.
