About Cat Martin:

A Different Dying.com is born of a life long curiosity in what happens as we die, when we die, and after...
Long experience in home based healthcare, Ive seen some bad deaths. Knowing that death and dying can be different has led me to promote better death, better dying and better grief.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

I work for a death positive, death literate community.


What would you like your legacy to be?

I'd like people in Tampa to die better, better informed, better planned, better mourned.

I'd like the dying to be fearless, and loved and honoured as a sacred journey


Thoughts for sharing:

I believe there is room for improvement in end of life care, in end of life planning.

A lovely time was had by all!

We were in one of the conference rooms this time. It was a wonderfully quiet room, and made for an intimate event.

 I hold Death Cafe Tampa each month to build death literacy and death positivity, it's a small gesture against the death phobic society we live in.

I put up about 15 posters, at various venues and advertised in local free media, print and radio.
