Please take the time to read the following:
As long as I'm clean, comfortable, and pain-free, I want my dignity to be preserved, even if it means that my death is brought forward a little. A life-prolonging procedure is ordered to be delayed or stopped under my advance instructions, according to the advance directive.

Step 9.
