John Nathan Carmena
On March 31, 2009 our world was turned upside down. At 14 years old our son John Nathan had gone to be with the lord. We couldn’t understand why he had taken his life and didn’t have any answers.

Within 2 weeks I began attending the BRCIC suicide survivors group every week . I don’t know what I would have done without this group and the support system within those walls.

March 31, 2021 will be 12 years since we lost our sweet John Nathan and I still go to the group every week not so much for help but to give back. I am now a co-facilitator and I am grateful to the counselors and survivors who helped me in my grief.

Our walk will be on April 10, 2021 and I would appreciate any donations to help support an organization that is so close to my heart.
