"I've seen families in tears of distress from not knowing what to do, and families in tears of relief when we found a patient's wishes documented... though they had never been discussed."

Douglas R. Wilson, MD

Queen of the Valley Medical Center Family Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Care

“My friend is at the end stage of an illness and unable to communicate. Unfortunately, her six adult children can’t agree on her care and she never completed an Advance Directive. It is difficult to watch, especially knowing how different it would be if she would have participated in advance care planning.” - Pat S.​
