16 Apr National Health Care Decisions Day (NHCDD)
Today is National Health Care Decisions Day and we would like to highlight the importance of advance planning for everyone.
Waiting until being diagnosed with a serious medical condition, like cancer, can make advance planning more difficult, especially facing issues of mortality. But creating a plan allows people the opportunity to express deeply held values and key personal preferences. Preparing in advance can provide individuals with the peace of mind that loved ones will be aware of and carry out their wishes. No one should feel that they are alone in this process. There are many resources out there to help individuals and families establish a comprehensive and cohesive estate plan.
We wanted to highlight a few free resources that Triage Cancer offers to help you navigate advance planning.
