How End-of-Life Planning Can Give Your Life New Meaning Now
善終計劃如何給予您生命新的意義

Riding with the Wind

When Fay Hoh Yin expressed her end-of-life wishes to daughter, Monona, in 2015 their relationship and lives improved. Miraculously, she recovered from near death and the two have since published Fay’s memoirs, Riding with the Wind, which they will share, followed by an interactive session to discuss end of life issues. We will be playing the “Go Wish” game.

FAY HOH YIN was born in Beijing in 1932 and grew up during the Sino-Japanese and Chinese Civil Wars. She and her family fled thousands of miles to escape the chaos, finally settling in Taiwan in 1949. She later came to the U.S. and earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin. She retired in 1991 after working for twenty-six years as a virologist for the DuPont Company in Wilmington, Delaware.

MONONA YIN is Director of Impact and Learning at Borealis Philanthropy. From 2004-17, she directed
capacity building at the Four Freedoms Fund, a national donor collaborative that has invested over $100 million in the immigrant rights movement. As an activist, Monona is a co-founder and former staff director of CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities in New York City. She graduated from Yale and lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.

Dawn M. Gross, MD, PhD is a hospice and palliative medicine physician practicing at the University of California, San Francisco. Considered a national thought leader on end-of-life care, Dr. Gross is an education innovator and invited speaker whose writing has appeared in several anthologies and journals including the New York Times, JAMA, Science and Annals of Internal Medicine. She is also the creator and host of the radio show, Dying To Talk, the first of its kind program dedicated to transforming the taboo around talking about death.

Nancy Belza is an educator, coach, and planning activist who facilitates courageous conversations around living and dying, and starting with the end in mind. She combines natural compassion and innate storytelling abilities with over 25 years of financial services industry experience, personal passion born from experiencing a close personal friend's death, and 15 years of mental health advocacy to help people face end of life planning prepared and empowered.

Paul Puccinelli, MS, MFT is a licensed marriage family therapist, parent educator, and facilitator of Dying to Talk events and conversations. He has developed a special interest in helping people who are struggling with complications associated with prolonged acute grief, and in assisting couples successfully manage conflict and stay connected. Paul provides spiritual/pastoral/bereavement support and/or counseling while respecting individual beliefs, culture, and values.
