What our participants have to say.


“I get strength from a group of people that I wish I had never had the cause to meet…twice a month you can find me getting the support to make it through.”

“I feel attending the group has been perhaps more helpful than other therapies.”

“I’m just smiling when I get out from your office with all of this energy and the experience that I had with the group.”

“In my five years on this journey, I’m still riding a bumpy road with so many obstacles and triggers that are hard to face. In other words, I’m just swimming in a rough sea going with the waves but I’ll NOT let myself drown but swim to shore and survive. We need to share each other’s coping skills in this journey to survive.”

“Every time I come home from the group, I have more energy and relief of feelings that we were able to express instead of bottling them up. Most people can’t understand (friends and family members) the feelings we have had since our loved ones left, so to me this group has become my refuge.”

“The more I say something about my son, the more I come into my reconciliation that I can get on with my life with pain, with meaning and purpose. I still do cry every day for my son, but it seems to be my new normal as a grieving mother.”

“There’s NO SPEED IN grieving and healing. Grieving is a slow process not an event…The support group is my inspiration. A place where I can recharge my battery every time my strength is not enough for my daily tasks. Thanks, fellow survivors. I just count my blessing through you and being grateful to have you all in my life’s journey, the journey in a CLUB no one wants to join.”

“I really like the concept of the group and how we share our personal loss and feelings of grief, and gain comfort from each and every one who attends. I feel I have really benefitted from the group and the interaction.”
