BENEFITING: Compassionate Friends, Inc.
This fundraiser is in memory of our daughter's classmate, Vicente Cardenas, who was lost on June 15, 2012. He was five days away from his fifth birthday. Our hearts go out to his family and friends as they cope with their loss.
"The Compassionate Friends is about transforming the pain of grief into the elixir of hope. It takes people out of the isolation society imposes on the bereaved and lets them express their grief naturally. With the shedding of tears, healing comes. And the newly bereaved get to see people who have survived and are learning to live and love again."
–Simon Stephens, founder of The Compassionate Friends
