About Us

Our Story

As a Radiation Oncologist, it’s my job to care for people who have cancer. I love my work, and as a part of an amazing team, we can cure some cancers but sadly, not all. While it’s easy to celebrate a patient who has been cured, the conversation is very different when it comes to someone who is dying.

This is why I created Dying to Understand. This time is a stressful time, not only for those diagnosed with a terminal illness, but also for their loved ones. This resource is aimed at supporting you and alleviating any undue stress.

Dying to Understand Charity

Our role as a charity is to educate those diagnosed with a terminal illness, as well as their loved ones, on death and dying, but we also want to educate you on how to make the most out of living.

As such we support charities that make life better. Have a look at our giving and please consider ways you can contribute to making life better where you live.


Our aim is to build a global resource to meet the needs of those facing death with simplicity and ease.

If you are a business offering a product or service that may benefit those facing death and feel you align with our values, click below to find out more. We’d love to hear from you.
