Welcome to EOLONM on the Web
2021 has been a year of challenges, losses, disappointments, large and small victories and even some positive signs that next year will be better for many. For many grassroots supporters, advocates, health professionals and patients, the enactment of the Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act authorizing medical aid in dying in NM was a high point. To be able to assist those suffering at the end of life to have a peaceful passing is indeed a blessing.
Successful advocacy often leads to the opportunity for service. Our coalition has now initiated a new non-profit dedicated to assisting families understand and exercise their right to self-determination, appreciate their range of end-of-life options, and access medical aid in dying, if they so choose, to reduce suffering and bring peace of mind. Similarly, we support and work with the healthcare community to thoughtfully honor their patients’ choices at the end of life with compassion and grace. It is honorable work and we, the Board-members and dedicated volunteers of EOLONM, are grateful for this opportunity. We are grateful for your support that helps us sustain this movement on behalf of all New Mexicans.
May you and yours have the best possible Holiday Season and may the New Year be kind to all.
From the Board of End of Life Options New Mexico.
