The Journey Project

Watch this video to meet us and learn about the project.

As a certified Death Doula, also known as an End-of-Life Specialist, my mission is to help people live their fullest life up until the very end. To help with this mission, I’m so excited to announce my newest service called The Uncle Brian Wellness Journey Project! I, along with my dear friend and fellow Death Doula Caroline Turner, am here to help make your final journey a fully realized, bucket list checkmark experience! This is intended to be a legacy project like no other – as big or as small as you want it to be. 

This project supports terminally-ill individuals of all ages, who are wanting to experience the thing they haven’t yet: to go to the place they have always wanted to go; to tie up loose ends with someone; to reconnect with family, friends, or people they need to before they pass. Our goal is to help you make this dream a reality. Want to jump out of a plane and fly? We will be there by your side! Is there something you want to do that your family and friends are like – no way I can’t do that? Well, we will do it with you! Or maybe you want to go to Disney and meet Mickey, or take a boat along the Seine in Paris, or Safari in Africa. We will do our best to make this happen for you and be right by your side the whole time!

With connections all over the world, a ton of travel experience on both of our parts, and a dream and goal as big as yours, we are ready to take on any task and see how we can help you check off that one last iconic thing on your list. Ultimately, we want to be with you from the start of this dream, curate it, go with you on this journey to be your support and guide, and document the whole experience so we can keep your memory alive even after you pass. This will be a memory for you to watch and one for your family to cherish long after you are gone.

But it doesn’t stop there. The purpose of this project is not just to experience this trip, but to be with you through it all. As your death doulas, we will also: 

  • Organize a living funeral for you – a time to be surrounded by your family and friends as they honor their love for you while you are still here. What a beautiful moment of closure for you and them. 
  • Support you through the end-of-life decision-making process and advocate for your wishes to healthcare and family members. 
  • And lastly, we will sit vigil with you and your family as you pass, ensuring that you are as comfortable as possible through your end of life.

This project was thought up so that we could not only be there for you during the hardest time but also help you live the best end of life you can. Through your journey, we want to inspire everyone to remember that life is meant to be lived up until the very end, even when faced with death. During this time, when you need support more than any other, and when you may say to yourself, “I wish I could just ____” or “I could really use ____,” let us help you fill in the blank. It would be our honor. 

Please visit our death doula services page for more information or to let us know if you are interested in letting us travel this journey with you. Also, please share this with anyone you may know who is in need of our services.
