Many people put off getting a Will or estate plan because they just don’t accept the reality that anything could happen and they think they’ll have more time. But we hear stories everyday of the unexpected happening and now it’s too late.
Parents get into a car accident while running errands and now their children are in foster care while the families fight over guardianship.
A young woman has a heart attack and now her wife is fighting with her family about whether to keep her on life support.
A college student has to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy while at school and the hospital won’t tell the parents anything about her condition.
An elderly parent falls and is nonresponsive and now her adult children can’t get her to sign any paperwork or tell them where important documents are located.
A dad gets a cancer diagnosis and now they’re scrambling to get things put into place, but there is just no time before life-saving surgery.
These are the stories of what happens to real, everyday people who also lived as if they were immune from these realities. So if you are reading this, it means YOU still have time. What do you want your story to be?
