Bianca Nogrady

journalist, author of The End

"I believe dying and death are an opportunity for honesty, for compassion, for communication and for stripping away all the noise and mess of everyday life, for discovering who we are at the core and what is truly important to us, whether we’re the ones dying or the ones saying goodbye."
