Why I got involved in Grief Dialogues: Sharing my own story encouraged others to talk about their own grief stories and the conversation was started.

Why I got involved in Grief Dialogues: Our connections define us, and we can accomplish far more together than we can independently. I’m excited to support the Grief Dialogues and its innovative grief therapy technique.

Why I got involved in Grief Dialogues: A friend of mine told me I nailed the grieving process when I wrote the song “Go On” for her mother’s death. Now I can share this song with Grief Dialogues.

Why I got involved in Grief Dialogues: Facing anticipatory grief, I felt the need, no the necessity, of connecting with others and our shared losses. 


During this time of isolation, writing about your grief can be a life line. #OutofGriefComesArt

As people practice physical distancing in the wake of the pandemic, connecting virtually has become the next best thing to being there for staying in touch with older family members, whether they’re a few miles away or across the country. @care_grief

“When done well, telemedicine provides something that face-to-face visits can’t – a window to the person, not as a body whose sickness will be deciphered through an H&P, but as a fellow human experiencing fear and needing connection. ⁦@care_grief⁩
