My Story…

We are very passionate to raise awareness for suicide prevention. Our journey to help raise money began when our youngest son, Spencer, took his life. Spencer lived with his arms open, helping others and living as all of us know we should. Spencer hid his depression from everyone, always putting on a happy face. Our wish is to help others and decrease barriers to seek help to end suicide.


Help me raise funds for Second Wind Fund! Suicide is currently the leading cause of death for youth  in Colorado. The Second Wind Fund aims to decrease the incidence of suicide in children and youth by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment. SWF’s program is delivered in 30 counties across Colorado, including: Denver, Jefferson, Mesa, Arapahoe and Douglas. To date, their program has served over 5,600 youth since 2002. Your support will help save young lives from suicide! 

Second Wind Fund has a simple formula for levels of financial support. They are capable of saving a young life for every $1,000 received: 

12 therapy sessions x $70 a session = $840 

3 Suicide Ideation Questionnaires = $30

Therapist Travel Reimbursement = $120 

Minimal Administrative Costs = $10

Total = $1,000
