How do you know if this book is for you?

First, you have accepted the fact that you are going to pass on. Second, you want to give yourself the best quality of life you can until the end. You are looking for a few simple tools or a process to think through your relationships and decisions about medical care. This simple, brief book on facing terminal illness is an empathetic guide.

What this book is NOT

It is not a book about how to take your own life. It will not help you find someone to assist you in killing yourself, or what mix of medicines will kill you.

The process outlined in this book WILL help you if you have accepted that you are going to die. It shows you a way to make clear decisions at this most challenging phase of your life.

This book shows you a way to find joy, peace and comfort in life now, when you know your time is short.

You may not feel like it at this moment, but you have an opportunity to choose how you want to live out the rest of your life. Your choices have everything to do with the joy, comfort and peace you can experience even as your life ends.
