More Capable and Calm

by Rudi O’Meara

Without DeathWise, I wouldn’t have had even the faintest glimmer of what an advanced care directive was—much less why I should have one in-place, even at 42. When I was recently rushed into emergency surgery, at least my wife and I knew what to ask our attorney for.

Without DeathWise® it would’ve been a scramble. And one charged-up with all sorts of alarm and worry. Because, the whole idea had, in some ways, been de-stigmatized by what we’d learned on, we were just that little bit more capable and calm—even in the midst of planning for the worst.
