Everyone needs a place to heal
Hi and thank you for visiting my fundraising page! All who know me have heard me mention my grief support group at OUR HOUSE. My group has helped me beyond measure through these last three years as I struggled with the individual losses of both of my beloved parents Momsicles & Popsicles (aka Best. Role Models. Ever.). I was truly blessed to have such loving and supportive parents and I miss them both everyday, but I know they are together again with my beloved big brother Chris, whom we lost unexpectedly as well six years ago.
However, OUR HOUSE is a donation based organization and need funds to help children & adults (loss of a parent or spouse) through their grief. They also do empathy training for medical students in Los Angeles with a number of the universities--having experienced an often lack of empathy as the child of a patient, I can speak to how incredibly invaluabe this training can be.
Necessary organizations like this only exist through community support--so please give whatever you can. I appreciate any support you can give on our behalf! And truly if you can join us for the walk, your presence is most welcome. Many thanks!
OUR HOUSE provides an essential service in our community for grieving children, teens, and adults. Please support the 2012 Run for Hope…a day for healing to support grieving families throughout Los Angeles. All money raised today will serve someone tomorrow. To join us for this event or for more information on how your donation is helping to make a difference in the lives of so many people, please visit our website at www.ourhouse-grief.org or call 310-473-1511.
