It’s a startling moment to hear a friend confide that her daughter has tried to take her life. Not everyone is as fortunate to have that child come to them and ask for help. This particular young woman is a lovely, intelligent, and active member of her community. No one would have ever guessed the extremity of her internal struggles. Her family is doing everything they can to support and help her live a long and healthy life, but the costs of facilities and counseling are adding up. Thanks to the Live Free Foundation, families that need financial help to cover the care that they need, have a place to go.
The Live Free Foundation is hosting a benefit to increase awareness, educate, and facilitate resources for youth at risk of suicide this evening Thursday, July 17th, in Taos, New Mexico, at the Old Martina’s Hall at 6:30pm. Proceeds from this event will go to help my dear friend and her daughter through this difficult time.
If you are able please attend this evening’s benefit. There will be music by The Rifters, Bill Hearne, and Michael Hearne, along with a variety of silent auction items including this Clay Cowgirl Sculpture!
