Have you ever read someone’s story and thought, ‘this is exactly what I needed to hear today'? Your story can do that for someone else. 

Our stories, whilst all unique, are all completely normal. And talking about them is important for all of us. It could help someone else in a similar situation. It could help us better understand what's happening for people at the end of life. Or, it could just help you.

We're looking for stories to feature on the Dying Matters channels and website, and to help us, and our parent charity Hospice UK, better understand what is happening for people who are dying, and who have been bereaved.

For this year's Dying Matters Awareness Week (6 - 12 May), we're keen to hear your experience of talking about dying with a healthcare professional. 

Honest, timely conversations about death and dying are essential to good end of life care. Yet all too often, barriers mean that patients, carers and families may not understand what is happening, or get the information and support they need. 

If you have experience of these types of conversations about dying with a healthcare professional, we’d like to hear from you, whether you feel they were good or bad.

If you hear or see something that you relate to - from someone who has been through a comparable experience or has felt similar emotions - then this can help you feel less alone. That's why we need to hear from you.
