    Thank you for your comment and you are more then welcome to attend. During the serie of speeches we do hope to give medical professionals some advice, in dealing with patients and family during and now i use your words, the end of life adventure.

    Hi all,
    If it would be interesting, I’d be happy to send you my new book, “Be The Noodle,” that chronicles my mother’s three month end-of-life “adventure.” There are several chapters from the dying person and her family’s perspective that medical professionals might find helpful.
