Hello Everyone, my name is Debra Larsen. The reason I'm raising funds is to help promote my platform which is on suicide prevention and awareness of depression. I lost my son in 2004 to suicide and a nephew in 2009. I have been on a mission to never lose a life again. I'm proud to say I have personally saved 3 live's by helping these people get the help and recourses they needed. I'm the State Titleholder for Petite Elite Mrs. Minnesota, Debra Larsen in the Today's American Woman Pageant and will be competing in the National's in Greenville, South Carolina in June 2014. I will be speaking on this very platform, this is my passion and I believe one life lost is one to many. The money will be used for my expenses. I'm very excited about this journey and hope you are to. I actively speak at The Eagles Healing Nest with veteran's and I'm on the Wright Mental Health Coalition which we just did a community event. We had all the students in high school and junior high, along with many others from the community wear green to show support on September 10th , which is National Suicide Prevention Day. It was a great turnout of support. I'm on a mission to reduce the stigma of depression, like I said before "One Life Is One To Many". Please help me on my quest to make a difference, gratefully Debra Larsen.
