the End of Life Crisis
Elizabeth Hospice presented William H. Colby, Attorney and best selling author
of Long Goodbye; The Deaths of Nancy Cruzan, in a well attended lecture
this past Monday at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.
Colby represented the Cruzan family during their daughter’s end-of-life crisis
and has spoken extensively across the country to large audiences on the ethical
and legal issues relating to death and dying.
outlined the physical, emotional and legal trauma the Cruzan family endured in
seeking to allow her brain-dead daughter, Nancy, to die. To avoid going through
the same ordeal the Cruzan family went through, Colby urges people to let their
end-of-life wishes be known to family and friends by use of an Advanced
Directive or Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care. Even if you already
have made these arrangements, he said, it would be wise to have your legal
counsel review them to make certain they are current and comply with recent
changes in the law.
This was one in a series of educational events presented by the Elizabeth
Hospice, widely recognized as a leader in community education on end-of-life
and author, William Colby addresses the audience at the California Center for
the Arts, Escondido.
