Living Will


A document in which you make a declaration that you do not wish to be kept alive by artificial means.  Living wills are sometimes not honored by some medical professionals or facilities who feel that their goal is to keep your body alive regardless of the quality of life you will lead, so it is important to make sure that the person you have named as your health care surrogate knows your wishes and is willing to carry them out when instructing your doctor.
