I am also in MA. According to MA law:

May I name more than one person as my Proxy?
In Massachusetts, you may name one “primary” Proxy and also an “alternate” Proxy. The alternate person would only step in as your Proxy if your primary Proxy was unavailable or was unable or unwilling to serve.

You cannot have more than one with equal say...because if there was ever a disagreement ... how would the doctors know who to agree with? I would say that your document is not legal in MA. You really should have gone to an attorney specializing in elder law, or estate planning law.
