EVENT DATE: Aug 08, 2015
Suicide has affected my family and friends multiple times; such tragedies have put great weight on my heart. Having struggled my own struggle, I've learned that nobody is alone in this internal battle.
Please consider donating to this cause, for too many people were not able to realize their true potential to live a happy life.
