National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. It is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
National Orchid Day
On April 16, 2014, Mike and Faith Young lost their daughter during labor. Her name is Orchid, inspired by the magnificent beauty and unique expressions of orchid blossoms. After launching a Kickstarter campaign in 2015, April 16 is National Orchid Day, in honor of their daughter.
