Nelson Mandela and the End of Life

Jan 20, 2014   //   by Hank Dunn   //   Advance Care Planning, Withdrawing Life Support  //  Comments Off on Nelson Mandela and the End of Life

My friend Connie Holden has written a great piece for the Boulder, Colorado newspaper the Daily Camera. In “Mandela: A Second Prison Sentence?” she reflects on the last months of Nelson Mandela’s life and encourages the readers to consider how they would like to spend their last days. Connie is an oncology nurse, former director of a hospice program, and now the co-founder of The Conversation Project in Boulder County. Thanks Connie!.
