Voicing My Choices empowers young people living with a serious illness to communicate to family, friends and caregivers how you want to be comforted, supported, treated and remembered.
Based on the Five Wishes advance directive, Voicing My Choices provides a guide for this discussion. Voicing My Choices was developed specifically for young adults with feedback and guidance from young people living with a serious illness.
• Voicing My Choices is available in a Spanish version, Expresar mis Deseos.
• Voicing My Choices was developed by researchers at the Pediatric Oncology Branch, National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Mental Health at the National Institutes of Health. The development process included extensive research using the Five Wishes advance directive and incorporating the feedback of adolescents and young adults.
