Not Born Yesterday

Choosing the End:  Not Born Yesterday

While we don’t like to think about it, we know that death is inevitable. In several states, adults who wish to control their own deaths have the option of medically assisted dying.

Our guest, Fran Johns, works with endoflifechoicesca.org, a nonprofit group that provides information, support and guidance to those seeking help when they have a terminal illness. She shares information on how to talk with your family, understanding the process, and reminds us that we do have control, even at the end.

Recorded on Perspectives, November 4, 2021.

“Thank you for everything these past few weeks. From your wise and informed counsel to your emotional support - I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything you’ve done for my family.” B.Y.
