As some of you may or may not know. I lost my mother as a young adult. Heart breaking and a loss that no one can explain or understand, unless you have lived it.
Fast forward...I am now married and having children of my own. Missing my mother during this time was hard, to say the least. I had 2 little boys at the time, while learning that my sister in-law was pregnat with a little girl!! The whole family was over joyed!
Little did we know that, my sister in-law was very sick and would not be with us much longer. heartbroken, an unimaginable loss, Leaving behind My Beautiful God Daughter Gianna.
I knew that someday she would need the support and help of others to help her understand and realize that her loss was not only her own loss, but that others shared the same loss. That is when I found out about EmpowerHER. Her dad being the amazing father he is, got her involved and connected with lots of others who also share this loss, allowing her to connect and reach out and hear others stories, closing that gap of feeling like no one could possibly understand.
I whole heartily believe in this cause and will most certainly do all I can to help support other girls, allowing them to get involved at no cost to them. If you can donate please do. If you Can not, that is ok. I Just ask that you please spread the word to inform others of this amazing support group ❤️
In loving memory of Diane Jastrzemski and Amanda Brini 🦋 I will be running the 2019 Hartford Marathon in support EmpowerHER
