During Michael's illness and since his death, the kids and I have been participating in counseling and group support through circle of care. I feel so fortunate to have this kind of agency right here in our community. I'd love to have you join us for the walk and/or donate to this unique organization.
Thanks for your love and support,
East Bay Agency for Children's Circle of Care is a unique program that supports children and their families coping with a life threatening illness or the death of a loved one. This program helps children heal and learn to cope with this traumatic experience through specialized Support Groups, Individual and Family Counseling, Crisis Support, Community Trainings and Outreach.
Money raised through this Walk to Remember fundraising efforts support Circle of Care services ensuring that no child will have to walk their grief journey ALONE.
