Our Mission Statement...

altWe know that Americans who are unprepared for death are more likely to make choices that allow or cause unnecessary suffering for themselves and their families.

In contrast, proper advanced planning creates a powerful opportunity for the end-of-life to become a time of peace, closure and even healing.

Our mission is to create conditions in which people: plan ahead, make their peace, understand that it is OK to die naturally, and make educated choices which allow them to pass away peacefully and comfortably surrounded by those who love them most.

We believe that public discussion of issues related to death and dying will have the added benefits of healing personal relationships, strengthening communities, and politically unifying the nation.

Although we do support gaining control over end-of-life processes, we do not support euthanasia, suicide, or physician-assisted suicide. We believe that palliative and hospice care hold the answers to the question: "How do we create peace at the end of life and how can we have a good death?"
