Who We Are

At End of Life Choices California we want to help change the face of dying in California by informing all Californians that they have choices at the end of their lives.

We strive to restore autonomy and control to the thousands of Californians who struggle daily with their terminal illnesses and progressive deterioration of their bodies, their capabilities.

We know there are many Californians with terminal illnesses, without hope of recovery, who do not wish to let the cancer or condition follow its course, ravage their bodies, overburden their families, and deplete their life savings.  We are here to help with information and personal support if they desire a peaceful death on their own terms, at the time of their choosing.
