  • More than 80% of Californians say their loved ones “know exactly” or have a “good idea” of what their wishes would be if they were in a persistent coma, but only 50% say they've talked to them about their preferences.
  • Eight out of ten people say it is “very” or “somewhat” important to write down EOL wishes, but only 36% actually have written instructions.

For Loved Ones

There are stories about this out there…

  • Reference Za, Terri Schiavo, or a personal story.

Our conversation can make the difference…

  • “I want you to be able to communicate for me if I am too sick to speak for myself and not ‘second guess’ yourself”
  • “When I am in a vulnerable state, I don't want to worry that you will listen to others opinions about ‘what is best for me’”

Here is what you do
