Stuff About Me:

I am a mother, a daughter, an avid runner, and a suicide survivor. When I was three my mother made the tragic decision to end her life. I am sure she wasn't aware that her permanent decision would pretty much end the lives of her children too...at least that was how it felt for the majority of my life.

As a suicide survivor you don't know if your life will end in the same manor...and your entire life is left with so many questions. So many voids in life left by the loss. So many years of tears and sadness that should have been filled with her laughter, her love, and her dreams being fulfilled.

No one should have to go through life with the pain of losing a mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, or a friend to suicide. No one should have to suffer the emence pain of depression.

My dream is to start my nonprofit , A Life Worth Living, A Life Worth Running. Through the comradery  of running I have found healing and I want to bring the same to other survivors and those that suffer from depression the same healing.
