Growing Bolder


Even though humans have a 100% mortality rate, a Kaiser Family Foundation survey reveals that only 27% of Americans, including about half of adults age 65 and over, do any end-of-life planning, such as wills, advance medical directives and pre-need funeral planning.

And while some may consider it morbid, we think it’s part of Growing Bolder to embrace the opportunities we have to Move Forward. Give Back.®, not only in life, but in death.

One couple has decided to will their bodies to research and medical education after they die. It's a final gift of compassion and a living legacy that will also help save lives for decades.

If you aren't interested in willing your body to science, perhaps one of these other options will appeal to you. From launching ashes into space to tucking them into the barrel of a hunting fan’s shotgun, many are rethinking their final resting place.
With 10,000 of us turning 65 every day there is a deafening silence when it comes to talking about our wishes for end-of-life-care. Ellen Goodman and The Conversation Project are changing all of that.
Some of the most positive and empowering experiences can happen in an unlikely place: hospice. Meet a woman whose journey through love and loss has compelled her to share her story with others.
We're proud to present Surviving & Thriving, hosted by cancer survivor Wendy Chioji and Growing Bolder's Marc Middleton and Bill Shafer, to shine the spotlight on real people who overcome obstacles and life's challenges with grace. Watch now!
