Whether we have lost a parent, child, spouse, sibling, grandparent, or other significant person in our life, death of a loved one can send us reeling. These intimate, personal stories highlight the myriad and unexpected ways people cope with real life struggles when facing traumatic loss. By sharing our most vulnerable accounts of grief, we build a safe harbor around the subject of death — even when the stories are heartbreakingly difficult. When facing loss of a loved one — from suicide, serious illness, alcohol or drug use, medical mishap, accident, overdose, or violent assault — WE CAN HEAL.
