"Her creative method of teaching was inspiring to me
both professionally & personally. We need an advocate to bring these choices to
light! Lisa Newburger is the one to do it! If you haven't witnessed her first
hand, call or write her today. You can be sure that, because of her, my husband
& I are going to have time with our 4 children at Christmas to discuss the
choices we have made & how they can help to carry them out."

people discuss the delicate issue of advance directives. Her 'Heart2Hearts'

and have a good time in the process! Every household in America needs these
cards!! If you don't have them, get them...PRONTO!"

"My four adult sons brought out the Heart2Hearts® cards to play
blackjack as they sat around for family time at the kitchen
table. As the game began, one of the boys said, 'Mom, if you get
an infection should we kill you?...Wait, WHAT? Mom, what are
these things?' That's when it got interesting. I explained the
purpose of the cards and they began to read the questions.
Although the conversation started in jest, it quickly turned as
difficult subjects were introduced and feelings and opinions
were voiced. Thank you for this great solution, I wish I had
been able to have the frank discussions with my parents before
we were 'living' the issues."
Bev Waters Shankman, Executive Director at Healthy Ohio Cities
"Getting people to talk about their end of life wishes with
their family can be one of the most difficult tasks I face as
a Hospice Social Worker. But, the Heart2Hearts® card game has
proven to be an excellent catalyst in initiating conversations
between patients and family members. As a result, family
members feel more comfortable discussing their loved-one's
wishes, and patients tend to be more candid. I am so glad to
have Heart2Hearts® in my tool box for working with patients
