Share Your Life Wishes
With Your Family

"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

"As an ICU nurse, I see first-hand how important it is for patients and families to talk about end of life decisions. I see a sense of peace and comfort in families who have had these discussions and who have an advance directive in place."

- RYANN B. CRITICAL CARE NURSE
