What is a Living Will? Why is a Living Will so important?

A Living Will is a written statement that expresses your wishes about your medical treatment during a potential end of life situation. If you suffered an accident or became gravely ill resulting in a vegetative state or irreversible coma, a Living Will would speak for you as you would be unable to verbally communicate. This powerful document gives direction and guidance to others regarding how YOU want to be treated in that situation. For your sake and your family and friends, it is wise to have a Living Will.
