Sometimes, the hardest conversations are the most important ones we can have.

“If end-of-life discussions were an experimental drug, the FDA would approve it.” 

A serious illness can raise a lot of questions.  
 
Questions about the trade-offs between caring and curing. Questions about quality of days and quantity of days.  And questions about what’s truly most important.  
 
As a society, we’re painfully ill-equipped to have these conversations. This includes our healthcare professionals who share our struggle to open this dialogue and talk honestly about what comes next.
 
That’s what makes “Being Mortal” such an important step forward. Because it forces us to think about our own wishes, to consider what’s important, and to start these important conversations with our loved ones and our healthcare providers.
 
You’re never too young or too healthy to make sure your end-of-life care wishes are known. 

― Atul Gawande, Being Mortal
