Dianne Gray, End of Life & Grief Doula


My life is dedicated to helping seriously ill, dying and grieving people around the world live as fully as possible until their very last breath.

Dying and grieving are personal (not just medical) journeys. I'm enormously thankful for the work of Dr. Kübler-Ross, who informed my decade-long hospice and palliative care experience with my healthy daughter, Christina and son, Austin, who died at age 14 from a rare, degenerative neurological syndrome.
