My name is Mary Bradley and in 1979,our only son David, age 16, died after an 8 year battle with Cystic Fibrosis. At that time, I could not find any means of emotional support, outside of my husband, in a group setting. Feeling so alone, trying to deal with the pain and emotions, I thought other parents may feel the same way.
This brought me to start a support group in 1987, with the hope new parents would know their feelings along their grief journey were normal. I wanted to help in any way I could.
