Uploaded on Dec 16, 2011 – TED Talk

In her 37 years as a registered nurse, Joyce has been present at over 1000 patient deaths. Having worked in the area of trauma, hospice and organ donation, Joyce knows the power of each person’s life and death. Her familiarity with the dying has inspired her to commit her life to the living.
