News From Julia

Dear Friends of EOLONM:

It is a pleasure to be connecting with you as we step into the fall season. 

As you know, EOLONM was established in 2021 when a group of passionate, determined folks gathered to design and build an organization dedicated to advance health care planning – education, support and including medical aid in dying for the terminally ill – following passage of the Elizabeth Whitefield End of Life Options Act.

Since beginning my new role with EOLONM, I have discovered an extraordinary community of caring people who place the highest value on health equity, access to information and self-determination. Whether tabling or presenting at an event or supporting a client through their end-of-life journey, EOLONM folks are dedicated to respecting every person’s choices – with love, compassion, and care. Their work is essential – addressing and bearing witness to the very essence of our human experience – planning and preparing for one’s end of life – from the practical to the profound. 

As we close out 2023 and look to 2024, we are excited to expand our work with marginalized communities and people living in rural areas, providing opportunities for clinicians to share best practices and support, assisting clients and their loved ones to find grief and bereavement resources, and attracting new donors and volunteers from around the state.

If you would like to learn more or get involved, please reach out via our website.

And, please consider supporting EOLONM. Help ensure all New Mexicans have the support, information and care they need.

Thank you.

Navigating Grief and Loss

At EOLONM, we want everyone – staff, volunteers and clients – to have the resources and support to navigate the complex realms of grief and loss. Our upcoming EOLONM book event with celebrated author, Gina Moffa, explores the challenging landscape of grief and loss with wisdom and care. Join us for the Zoom conversation on Wednesday, November 8th at 1:00 (MST)

A Special EOLONM Book Event:

“Moving On Doesn’t Mean Letting Go — A Modern Guide to Navigating Loss.”  By Gina Moffa

Wednesday, Nov. 8th, 2023

Grief is alive, wild, untamed and cannot be domesticated. It resists the demands to remain passive and still. We move in jangled, unsettled, and riotous ways when grief takes hold of us.  It is truly an emotion that rises from the soul.” 

Francis Weller, The Wild Edge of Sorrow.
