Tim McGraw has joined the board of a new company called Narus Health, a new venture launched by entrepreneur Michael Burcham. The company helps terminally ill patients develop a plan for end of life care.

“When I learned of Narus Health’s patient-focused approach, helping people with serious illness live their lives, it struck a chord,” McGraw said in a statement.

“I remember all the decisions my dad had to make along the way, and the support system he needed throughout his journey.”

“When you are facing a serious illness, you need a dedicated team to ride alongside you. People who will listen, provide support and guidance for you and your family, and give you a voice in your health care decisions. That’s the kind of care everyone deserves, and it’s why I’m partnering with Narus Health,” he added.

McGraw and Narus are expected to unveil more details on the company in the coming months.
