I'm Sorry to Hear proudly supported the first Death Cafe Philadelphia Monday night at Saxbys UPenn. Over 30 people attended this "macabre Meetup" to join in some lively discussion about life's heavier topic over coffee, tea, and cake.
Attendees from all backgrounds participated, ranging from a physicist to hospice nurses. A med student to the "regular" at the coffee shop. Men and women old and young joined in to story tell, reminisce, talk about one's own fears of death, and discuss their bucket lists.
The event received some initial press from WHYY, which quickly spread to other Philadelphia news staples including NPR, Philadelphia Magazine, and NBC10. Take a look at a few photos from the event and keep your eye out on the news for after the event coverage from the Philadelphia Inquirer.
