Teri commented on Death-Ed: because abstinence is not an option

I am so excited about this both as a former teen who had great loss in my four years of high school. Several car accidents and a suicide and no one to talk to about it. This was many years ago but a small school and no one discussed it. My friends and I (now in our 50's) have all discussed what a big impact it had on our lives and how we suffered because we only had each other. I also think it is a great idea to expand it to a younger crowd. After working many years in pediatric hospice, I witnessed many kids who had a difficult time coping with loss. As a society we have gotten better about discussing it (even with children) but have a long way to go. This is awesome Dawn.

I love this idea. I have been both on the patient and provider side and this would humanize what can be a very degrading experience. Super great for the ICU but I see it everywhere. Many things in various areas in process that are similar to this but this is my favorite. Can't wait to see it come to life.
