Where To Start

We’re here for you. Whether you’re a patient, grieving, caregiving, work in healthcare, or are just curious about the topic, everyone’s experience is unique. Get started with the guide that speaks most to where you are right now.

How

Every end-of-life story we have the privilege to hear reveals more ways we can live well during this rich last phase. The more possibilities that exist, the more choices we have about how to leave this world with the dignity, love, and joy every one of us deserves.

Tools & Resources

We find and share real-world solutions and personal stories about facing life’s toughest challenges and learning to live fully through to the end.

Conversations & Convenings

We bring together thought leaders, designers, health care professionals, patients, famous people and regular folks to talk about their experiences with all things end of life.

Education & Advocacy

We shift cultural narratives by influencing the way illness, dying, and death are portrayed in the media and on TV.

Make end of life, part of life

In a 2019 study, 55% of families felt their loved one had a “bad death.” By igniting a movement to spark conversations and ask the right questions, we create opportunities for the things people most want – including spending time with those they love, dignity, and the autonomy to make their own decisions.

By donating today, you support the critical work we do to change the culture around the end of life.
