The stories in Bridging The Gap have nothing to do with death, but everything to do with all the days in between birth and death. These stories show ordinary individuals making extraordinary choices, inspiring others to take action in end of life planning. But mostly these stories are encouragement to participate in life and to design a life around what matters most and not just allow death to be a final destination. This book is about the days lived prior to taking our last breath that could radically change how we die, how our loved ones grieve us, and even how the medical culture serves us. Each story is based upon true events that have occurred in my life and during my time working in hospice care. It is about life and living... until the moment it ends.
