Use the hashtags : #Grief2021#GriefJourney #SharedJourney Feel free to write and submit articles or op-eds to your local newspapers, or write online posts for your social media and websites on what grief and bereavement means to you. Share resources and information with your community, including those who may not have encountered grief and bereavement to the same extent as those involved in the palliative care network and community. By talking about our grief and sharing our stories, we can help all help people throughout their grief journeys – whether they are with recent grief, bereavement, anticipatory grief, ambiguous grief, and chronic sorrow. Through normalizing grief and bereavement and the discussions around it, we can begin to understand the ways in which we all handle bereavement and grief differently. In helping others to understand this process, we can improve the ends of one’s life for those in palliative care, for their families, for caregivers, and for loved ones.

Tickets to the concert are free , and the show will feature artists such as:

“There is never a ‘good’ time to lose a loved one. The Saying Goodbye concert has the potential to create really great awareness around grief and bereavement as we experienced it as never before during this difficult time of social isolation.” - Laurel Gillespie, CEO of the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association.
