Patient Choices Vermont (PCV) is a 501c3 organization that educates Vermonters on medical aid in dying and patient choice. Vermont's Patient Choice at End of Life Law (Act 39) was enacted in May, 2013. Now, after crossing the six-year mark, many doctors and hospice care-givers in the state are aware of the law and able to help patients consider their choices when facing terminal illness. PCV works to keep Act 39 strong by fending off legal challenges, increasing the network of medical personnel and pharmacies available to help patients, and educating communities.
Thanks: People from all over Vermont write frequently to thank PCV for working to get Act 39 in place. One Vermonter says:
"The beauty of death with dignity is that it gives you those moments for last intentional connections." -- Samantha Stevens
Please help safeguard end-of-life choice in Vermont.
