1. If I should, at any time, have an incurable condition
caused by any disease or illness, or by any accident or injury,
and be determined by any two or more physicians to be in a
terminal condition whereby the use of "heroic measures"
or the application of life-sustaining procedures would only
serve to delay the moment of my death, and where my attending
physician has determined that my death is imminent whether
or not such "heroic measures" or life-sustaining
measures are employed, I direct that such measures and procedures
be withheld or withdrawn and that I be permitted to die naturally.
2. In the event of my inability to give directions regarding
the application of life-sustaining procedures or the use of
"heroic measures", it is my intention that this
directive shall be honored by my family and physicians as
my final expression of my right to refuse medical and surgical
treatment, and my acceptance of the consequences of such refusal.
3. If I have been diagnosed as pregnant and such diagnosis
is known to my physicians, this directive shall have no force
or effect during the course of my pregnancy.

this directive and I fully understand its import.
5. I reserve the right to revoke this directive at any time.
