Few people enjoy talking about the inevitable endgame. Led by Dr. Michael Fratkin, a team of healthcare professionals are in the midst of a fundraising campaign to provide more options patients going through end-of-life-care.

Dubbed Resolution Care, they seek to use telemedicine to empower patients worldwide with the options they might not otherwise be presented with. He spoke with KHUM earlier today.

When discussing end-life-music, Fratkin throws a challenge down: What's on your funeral's playlist?

Funeral Challenge

  • Lost Coast Outpost's Andrew Goff: "U2"
  • KHUM's Larry Trask: "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", the Clash
  • Dr. Fratkin: "It's The End Of The World (and I Feel Fine), REM
  • Leave your own answer in the comments. 

According to Dr. Fratkin in a video about Resolution Care:

"Resolution care is a social enterprise. It's a combination of a nonprofit and a professional corporation that share the same mission to ensure that soulful and capable care are available to everyone everywhere as life approaches completion."
