Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.

– Haruki Murakami

DYING SHOULD NOT BE A DISASTER – BUT IT OFTEN IS WITHOUT HELP

If you or someone you know is struggling with a terminal illness or is facing death, we are here to help. We know that wishful thinking and hoping for the best are not enough when it comes to dying. Everyone needs some support when life is ending.

The aim of our charity is to provide death education so that when the time comes, we can be informed, prepared and ready to face death. There are important practical, physical, emotional and spiritual things to know about dying. This knowledge does not make dying worse or make dying happen sooner, it makes dying easier.

When it comes to dying, you are not alone because we also are a community of like-minded people struggling with life and death issues. We share the same fears and anxieties, losses and encouragement. We believe that by walking through this together, we can do both living and dying better.

It starts with a conversation.

We invite you to become a member of our community and to be a part of the conversation.

He would also love to hear from you to know what you have been up to and what you are thinking.
