How to Have a Good Life and a Good Death (2003)
ABC News Store
"It seems almost flippant to describe it that way, but it is a subject that is still taboo in America. How we deal with the end of life is something that we could have a lot of control over but don't. Tonight Nightline looks at one woman's attempt to confront the most difficult issue a family can deal with: how to cope with a terminal illness. How many of you have discussed with your family what you woul do in the event of a catastrophic illness, a diagnosis of a terminal disease? I can guess that the answer would be not very many of you. It is something we don't like to 'face our own mortality' and to actually sit down with our families and loved ones to talk about what measures we would like taken in the event of such a circumstance is one of the hardest thing[s] to do."
