Patient Choices Vermont (PCV) is a non-profit organization dedicated to end-of-life choice. PCV worked for more than ten years to achieve enactment of the law entitled Patient Choice at End of Life (Act 39). PCV educates Vermonters and the state's health care providers about end-of-life choices and works to ensure that all Vermonters have access to the rights established by the law.
People from all over Vermont write frequently to thank PCV for working to get Act 39 in place. One Vermonter wrote:
"The beauty of death with dignity is that it gives you those moments for last intentional connections." -- Samantha Stevens
