A living will is a set of instructions concerning what medical actions
should be taken in the event that you are no longer able to make decisions
or are otherwise incapacitated. Generally, a living will provides directions
about the course of medical treatment. A living will may express the person's
desire not to be kept alive through the use of medical technology when
the person is in a terminal condition and unable to communicate the person's
wishes to decline further treatment. In addition, a living will may forbid

- Receive blood transfusion
