By now you've heard the news that actor Tom Sizemore's family has announced that they are currently deciding 'end of life matters' for the actor.

Sizemore, who appeared in many films including Saving Private Ryan, Heat, and Black Hawk Down, collapsed at home on February 18th after he suffered a brain aneurysm. His manager released a statement on February 2tth saying:

"Today, Monday February 27, 2023 doctors at St Joseph’s Hospital Burbank updated the family of Tom Sizemore as to his condition.
In the early hours of Saturday, February 18, 2023 Tom Sizemore collapsed at his Los Angeles home and was transported to a hospital by Paramedics. He was found to be suffering from a brain aneurism that occurred as a result of a stroke. Since that day, Tom has remained in critical condition, in a coma and in intensive care.
Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end of life decision. The family is now deciding end of life matters and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday.
We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support, and prayers that have been received. This has been a difficult time for them."

End of Life matters is a very important and not always easy topic to discuss, so we turned to Dr. Jim Keany, Co-Director of the ER at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, to talk about what that really means and he had a lot of great information, check out the segment below.

Dr. Jim mentioned a product called MideoCard that is very helpful to families dealing with this decision. Jim says most end-of-life documents like an advanced directive are useless. This product is unique in that addresses the issue from a doctor's perspective in a real world setting. FULL DISCLOSURE: Dr. Jim and his group believes in this product so much that they partnered with them, but he makes NO money from the sales of it.
