Compassion & Choices
(Washington State)

Compassion and Choices of Washington strives to improve end of life care through education, counseling, planning, and advocacy, while upholding individual rights to seek aid in dying to avoid intolerable suffering. C&C is recognized nationally for its advocacy of choice for the terminally ill and its commitment to improved treatment of pain and other symptoms. C&C’s unique service includes the ongoing relationships we develop between our Client Support Volunteers and those who want to explore end-of-life choices. Each year we provide information and consultation to hundreds of patients and families. Two of their primary concerns: no one dies in pain and no one dies alone. The Riverstyx Foundation also supported C&C in their effort to promote WA State Initiative 1000.
