“If I had a magic wand, what would you wish for?”  April 16th is Advanced Care Planning Day - an opportunity to have a conversation with loved ones about what matters most in life, and how we want to face death. 

Sandip Roy: Auntie

Feb 17, 2016

Sandip says a heartfelt goodbye to a favorite Aunt.

Dawn Gross, MD, PhD has been caring for people with life-threatening illnesses for over a decade. She is committed to revolutionizing the way we talk about — and prepare for — death.  On her special KALW series Dying To Talk, she and her guests will create a safe space to transform the experience of end-of-life conversations from dread to discovery.

Music has a special power that we all recognize. It can make us dance or sing along. It can make us happy, sad, reflective, agitated or calm. We can hear it live, or recorded. But seldom do we have a small choir serenade us - only us - at our bedsides.

That’s what The Threshold Choir does-- but not everyone can request these services. They only sing to a specific group of people: the infirm or dying.
