BENEFITING: HEARTSTRINGS INC
ORGANIZER: HEARTSTRINGS INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
We are participating in the Heartstrings Rememberance walk in honor of our angel boys. Byron & James were born too soon at 17 weeks on August 17, 2010 and our son Mason was stillborn on July 9, 2011. When we started looking online for support groups and help for loss parents we met Heartstrings director Annie Vorys & her amazing husband Mike. We all formed an instant bond that has led to a life lasting friendship and even meeting in person on a couple of occassions. With their help we learned several ways to help navigate our grief, remember our boys and also how to keep moving forward in life. Our hope is that Heartstrings will continue their amazing work and maybe someday even grow so that other areas of NC have local access to this great support network.
Please consider supporting our Heartstrings walk team, $10 is the minimum, and we would be honored if you'd consider donating that amount in honor of our boys, or in memory of someone you love.
With Love & Thanks,
The Clink Clan
