How I Survived My Sister's Death


lonely woman
The loss of a sibling is an intensely lonely experience ... but it doesn't have to be.
... and you can, too.

I'm on a mission to give a voice to sibling survivors so we aren't all by ourselves, so we can find each other if we want to talk. If we want support, there is support. It is helpful knowing other people who know exactly what you're going through. Perhaps there are people who are slightly further down the road then you are who can look back and say, "Yes, I remember the 1-year anniversary or the birthday or Christmas or other major events," and give suggestions on how they got through it. And perhaps that will help.

I'm on a mission to create a dialogue so whether you're a sibling survivor, the friend or work colleague of a sibling survivor, you have the words and the knowledge to properly acknowledge the loss and help yourself or a sibling survivor you know to continue on with life and to live it fully and richly.
