Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
I'm walking in the Out of the Darkness Atlanta Walk to fight suicide and support AFSP's bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.
My story began when my uncle who I only have pictures of holding me as a baby committed suicide at age 16, after this suicide took my only sibling/brother at the age of 23, it then took my mom, age 56, who battled years of chronic pain & depression. This monster also took one of my dearest friend's son at the age of 24. I do not wish this pain on my worst enemy. After years of not speaking about it I decided this was my way of giving back and making suicide a household name because it usually is such a taboo subject. SUICIDE is affecting our veterans, our youth, our moms/dads, teachers, siblings, I could go on and on. Mental illness and depression are demons within our own walls, our own schools, our own workplaces, etc. I choose to help raise money for American Foundation for suicide prevention as my outlet for grieve. My passion is to help others I certainly can't save everyone but If we can make a difference for one person it's worth it.
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.
