Carrie Andrews Shares Her Personal and Professional Experience as a Patient Advocate

Updated: Oct 31, 2021

We are at an unimaginable time when people are being scared to death by the assorted, changing, and incongruent information about the COVID-19, if not by the virus itself. Where people could formerly avoid the topic of death, now it is almost unavoidable.

Long before this pandemic phenomenon, I have had the urge to normalize the conversation about death and dying, and somehow help people accept death as a part of life that reminds us to live every moment fully, even the messy ones.

It has been my experience that when we voice the concerns about death and dying that we have kept hidden, we realize that we are not alone, and by expressing our fears and asking our questions in a supported environment, we are better able to transform them and make them far more manageable. I was lucky to find someone who shares this perspective.
