About Dawn Whelan:

In 2014 I founded My Last Gift which affords individuals the opportunity to show those they cherish that their love is infinite beyond the physical boundaries of life. I offer end-of-life education, planning, and posthumous services.   I have also founded a non-profit version of this service One Last Gift in 2018 serving children and their families.

I serve as a hospice volunteer throughout Hartford and Tolland Counties in Connecticut. I am a certified End Of Life Doula, and Care Consultant through the award winning Doulagivers® program. I have additionally trained with Henry Fersco-Weiss founder of International End-of-Life Doula Association (INELDA), and completed a certificate in End-of-Life through Allegra.  I have been Doulagivers® Executive Officer and partner since 2016, offering end of life education, mentorship, and training.  I am a founding member of the non-profit International Doulagivers Foundation.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

This is community of like minded individuals who share the desire to have conversations that encompass the taboo yet improtant topics of death and dying.


What would you like your legacy to be?

Death is one of the greatest fears that people have.  I would like to remove , or at least lessen that fear for as many people as I can.


Thoughts for sharing:

We are all born and we all die, its what we do in the middle that ceates our legacy. ~DW
