In 2009 Bronnie wrote an online article called Regrets of the Dying about her time as a palliative carer.
Working with dying people and developing close relationships with them during their last weeks resulted in raw, honest conversations about life and death, including what the patients wished they had done differently.
These revelations had such a powerful effect on Bronnie it was impossible to contain them. Instead, she honoured the requests of some of her dearly loved patients and shared the wisdom onward, through her article. As it then swept the online world by storm, with multiple-millions of views worldwide, requests poured in for more sharing of Bronnie’s life and how to actually apply the wisdom she had been bequeathed. This became her best selling memoir, which has been read by more than a million people from all corners of the globe, with translations in 31 languages.
Bronnie now travels internationally sharing her knowledge with the world.
