What I Wish I Had Known.....

All too often families find themselves in emergency mode when a loved one becomes gravely ill. How do you secure the end-of-life care you want for yourself or a loved one? Our panelists discussed options, information sources and advocacy. They included Jim Kelly, with a moving personal account of his father's death; Teresa Powell, co-chair of Oak Park's End of Life Action Team and a member of the national nonprofit Compassion & Choices; hospice nurse Catherine Gallogly; and end-of-life doula Julie Iverson.
