When Annie Broadbent was just 25 her mum died of cancer. One of the hardest, and least expected, aspects of the whole experience was the way in which support from friends and family (verbal, practical and emotional) was so often varied and inadequate. We don't have a language to help people suffering from grief and we often shy away from discussing death altogether. Frustrated with seeing family and friends paralysed by their fear of death, and their reluctance to talk about it, Annie decided to share her own experience of grief and the stories of others as a way to help shed some light on the darkest moments in life
