Every year for the last three years, Mike and I have participated in AFSP's Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention Community Walks in memory of my brothers Joe and Jim. First we walked in Boston and now I co-chair the Merrimack Valley/Lowell Community Walk. My parents have been so supportive of our participation with AFSP. Donations to AFSP funds research aimed at improving our understanding of suicide and ways to prevent it. Let there be a world without suicide.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.
