We learn that Cody suffers from reoccurring cancer, and would rather choose to leave this world when she is feeling better and can communicate with her family rather than waiting till she is in so much pain or is so sick that she is not able to communicate with her family members. For Cody, she knows that the day where she stops enjoying most things in her life and she feels like a burden is the chosen day of her death. A big reason why Cody chose physician aid-in-dying is the fact the patient has complete control over their own death.
