My Story…

September is National Suicide Prevention Month and for those of us who have been at risk for suicide or have a loved one at risk, need to focus on suicide prevention every day, of every year. And we can do this by continuously spreading awareness, advocating for research funding, developing innovative and effective treatment tools, being kind, and helping to educate others on things like resources and warning signs. I'm inviting you to get involved by making a donation to help me raise funds for the non-profit Second Wind. Every penny counts.


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

Thank you so much for supporting me and Second Wind Fund! No donation is too small. If you need any additional information on Second Wind Fund, please visit their website:
