Life Support: When is Enough, Enough?

Deborah Day Laxson

How does a non-medically trained individual respond when life support no longer supports life? Using her own real life example, Deborah brought the audience on her journey as she learned to navigate the complexities of the medical world in order to honor her husband’s choices regarding medical care at end-of-life.
