      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

I am a college student and I am currently helping my father plan his living funeral, he has terminal bladder cancer. While going through this experience with my dad, I have decided to begin a research project with the goal of relating the experience of having a living funeral to extended longevity in terminally ill patients and more comfortable grief experiences among surviving family members. In order to complete this project, I need to talk to a bunch of people who have had living funerals, that is where you guys come in, I hope. I need volunteers to write, in response to a prompt, their stories and experiences regarding their living funerals or the living funerals of their loved ones.


Please, this research project is super important to me and I want it to eventually begin a shift in how everyone thinks of funerals and terminal illness. 


If you or anyone you know might be willing to participate, please either respond to this post or email me at Heather.Kendall14@ncf.edu.

Thank you in advance for all of your help!
