It starts with Hello.

At Hello events, participants are introduced to Hello and use it to have meaningful conversations about living, dying, and what matters most to them. These are difficult topics to talk about, and Hello makes these crucial conversations easier, more comfortable, and even fun.

If you know anyone who could benefit from Hello, then please join us on May 1, 2019 for Hello Host Certification Training, led by Jethro Heiko.

Here are the details:

Hello Host Certification Training

This event is limited to the first 50 people that register.  Each participant receives:

  • Certificate Wallet Card
  • Starter kit to host your first Hello game event (additional kits are available for a small fee)


S.C. Health Care Decisions Day



About the event

April is South Carolina Health Care Decisions Month, and April 16 is set aside as South Carolina Health Care Decisions Day.

This important day and month exist to inspire, educate, and empower each of us to:

  • THINK about your values, beliefs, and goals… How do they relate to your health care and quality of life?
  • TALK with loved ones openly and honestly—before a medical crisis happens—so others know what matters most to you at the end of your life.
  • WRITE IT DOWN in the proper South Carolina Advance Directive form and share it with your loved ones and your doctors.

Add Your Name

Sign the pledge below to speak out on this important day.

My Life My Choices seeks to promote Advance Care Planning by empowering all South Carolinians to make these critical decisions.

We work with health care providers to increase awareness about Advance Care Planning, and provide resources to help you make informed decisions about end-of-life care and ensure they are honored.

This April, health care facilities, health care professionals, religious leaders, the legal community, and others across the state will be participating in a collective effort to highlight the importance of advance care planning and to provide tools for making these decisions.

The goal is to encourage you to express your wishes to others regarding health care advance directives, and to document those wishes to make sure providers and facilities respect them, whatever they may be.

It’s never too early to make a plan for future health care decisions and to talk with your loved ones about their plans. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Sign the pledge today to participate in S.C. Health Care Decisions Month this April!
