In 2011, I lost my mother to suicide. Losing my mother has been the hardest struggle I have faced. It took time to get over the anger and confusion over why this happened.
Now, I am involved with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, which offered me support and help. I am making suicide prevention my life's mission.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It takes an enormous toll on families, friends and communities.
