Michelle Wickum

After Michelle lost her father to suicide, she became an advocate for advance care planning and end-of-life options.
“Dad’s suicide opened my eyes to just how taboo conversations about death and the end of life are in our society. It brought home to me my own mortality.”

Rod Azama

Colonel Rod Azama traveled with his wife from Maryland to Oregon so she could end her suffering from stage 4 cancer.
