Share Your Story

Sharing your story will help us devise human-centered solutions. We’ll draw upon your story throughout the entire challenge (not just during the Inspiration phase) to better understand the experience of those who are dying.

We all have experiences related to death. Perhaps you’ve experienced the death of a loved one or have been close to death yourself. Maybe you have experience working in a care facility or are currently in the process of watching your parents age. Thank you for being willing to get vulnerable with this challenge topic and share your experience.
