death. April 16 is National Healthcare Decisions day

Now that tax season is officially over, you may be looking forward to getting back to the business of living your life, free from the distasteful chores of searching for W2s, collecting receipts and sharpening number two pencils.

Not so fast. It appears that "the cruelest month" just got a little crueler.

Toady, April 16, marks the first-ever National Healthcare Decisions Day, a countrywide initiative wherein healthcare providers, personal attorneys, chaplains and others highlight the importance of advance healthcare decision-making.
