Today, April 16, is National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHCDD). NHDD is dedicated to encouraging Americans to take a few moments to talk with their families about future healthcare treatment and complete the necessary documents (advance directive, register as an organ/tissue donor, etc.) to ensure that end-of-life decisions are known and upheld.
We are encouraging Illinois and northwest Indiana residents to take a few moments to register as lifesaving organ and tissue donors and discuss this decision with family members. You can register your decision online at GiftofHope.org or DonateLifeIllinois.org in a matter of seconds.
Also, be sure to ask your friends and family members about their end-of-life decisions. Learn more about NHDD at NHDD.org.
