On Tuesday October 19, 2021 a dear friend Tyneshia Roechelle Henderson's daughter Livi Jaay (Real name: Olivia Popham) sadly lost her battle with depression. In the wake of this tragedy Olivia leaves behind two young sons three year old O’Syiah and two year old Iverson. Per Olivas mother Tyneshia: 'Those who knew her will always remember her as an amazing mother, daughter and friend. Please be aware that depression is real and I want people to know that the kids of this generation aren’t as strong willed as they would like for us to believe they are!! These newer mothers, they truly need a better and bigger support system!! I need them to know to please reach out!! My kids where my world and no matter how much love I showed them, there was always someone two steps away tearing them down. Please just help save someone else’s life when they are crying out for help."
We ask of those who are able to provide donations in order to aid Tyneshia and her family in this unimaginably difficult time, 100% of the proceeds will go toward Olivias funeral expenses and care for her two children.
A personal message from the creator of this fundraiser: If anyone you know is suffering from depression, please never ignore them or dismiss them as 'being dramatic' or 'begging for attention'. Far too often we as a society disregard those suffering in silence and only notice the pain that they were in when it is too late to help them. Check in on your friends, take time out to talk with them, show them that they are not as alone as most suffering from depression genuinely believe they are. That time you take out can make a lifetimes worth of difference.
If you are personally suffering from depression, please remember you are not alone and don't be afraid to reach out there is help available.
