On May 22, 2016, I lost one of the most important people in my life. I lost not only my sister, but my very best friend. I miss her every single moment, of every single day. At just 28 years old, Colie lost a battle she fought for so long. Colie lit up any room she walked into. She was beautiful, funny, charismatic, and had the biggest heart. Most importantly, she was a loving mother to 2 beautiful babies, Rylan and Ava. Her children were her entire life, and she lives on through them. Colie fought for so long, and now we will fight for her, and everyone else that has struggled with suicide.
I'm walking in the Out of the Darkness Chicagoland Walk to fight suicide and support AFSP's bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.
Please help me reach my goal by clicking the "Donate" button on this page. All donations are 100% tax deductible and benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide.
Thank you for your support!
