WHAT ARE "ADVANCE DIRECTIVES"?
Advance directives are documents that state your choices about medical treatment or name someone to make decisions about your medical treatment, if you are unable to make these decisions yourself. They are called "advance" directives because they are signed in advance to let your doctor and other health care providers know your wishes concerning medical care.
AVAILABLE FOR ALL 50 STATES IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
Because the advance directive laws are different for each state, PMR has created an individual book for each state and the District of Columbia. PMR tracks all state and federal laws that relate to advance directives and updates each book when the law changes.
Furthermore, many states have been published in other languages such as Spanish, Haitian Creole and Vietnamese. Click here for the selection of books and languages.

CancerLINC serves cancer patients across Central Virginia, including any patient receiving treatment through a Richmond area cancer care group or facility. In our most recent fiscal year, CancerLINC helped 401 patients and their families with 486 legal and financial issues. Approximately 65% of these patients live below the Federally-defined poverty level, making them eligible to receive pro bono services from at least one of the more than 150 skilled and compassionate CancerLINC volunteer professionals. We are unique. To our knowledge, there is no other organization in the Commonwealth like CancerLINC.
You may have noticed that LINC, the Legal Information Network for Cancer is now CancerLINC. CancerLINC does so much more than assist with legal challenges for our clients, so we changed our name. We also help with financial consulting, and we connect our clients to other much needed resources.
