Save Dad's Life...Help Prevent Suicide

March 18, Phillip Herron, a single father to 3 children shared a photo of himself in his car crying, moments before killing himself because he had run out of money and could not pay rent.

I can't help but wonder if just maybe he and I had spoken, I could have helped him get through, helped insure his kids would grow up with a father. 

I'm writing a book called:

          "Learning 2 Swim When Everything You Own Is Underwater"

I'd been putting it off for years because I was ashamed of what I'd gone through financially.  Inspired after seeing Phillip's story, for the next 3 weekends I went straight to the library with a note pad and just wrote, from the time they opened until the time I was asked to leave.

My hope is that my book and my story will help others facing challenges find the strength to push through, I believe my destiny is to help lead others through adversity.

The funds will be used to publish the book, and, any additional funds received will be donated to suicide prevention charities and also Phillip Herron's 3 children.

This book is for:
The husband who just lost his job, was laid off, and is wondering where his next step will be.  What will he tell his wife? 

The single mom or dad, working 2 jobs, getting up at 4 a.m. trying to still  "be there" for their kids.

The guy who is lonely b/c he just broke up with his girlfriend or got divorced and can’t get his thinking straight.

For the Person who just got that phone call, or that knock on the door.....who has fallen to their knees in sorrow, their world shattered having learned someone they love has passed.

The kids who are not happy when school is over, who are afraid to go home because they are abused or have no "family" to go home to.

For the little girl who at Christmas wishes, not for things, but only for her parents to get back together.

             For the Person who just wants the pain to go away...please...stay strong.


Your donation and support will mean the world to me, to Phillip's 3 children, and, may even save a life.
