The Power of Knowing

The Role of Faith in End-of-Life Decisions

• Learn about ways faith can be a source of strength and support during end-of-life planning.
• Learn about faith resources that can be used as a part of end-of-life decision making.

Meet Our Panelists

Gail LeBauer
AuthoraCare Foundation’s Board of Trustees
Gail is a retired psychiatric nurse. Her passion, since she was a young girl, was to take care of other people, and to help others on their path. This passion led her to become a psychiatric nurse. She has always been committed to a spiritual awareness of how we are all created in the same way. And while acknowledging that we are the same underneath, our transitions, beliefs, and skin may be different. Gail is grateful for the path she has taken, and remains committed to helping others while trying to be the best person that she can be in any given moment.
