Out of the Darkness
My brother Christopher served three years in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. On January 27th 2008, at only 21 years of age, he was able to take his life. The series of events that led to his death that night could’ve been prevented. He screamed for help and his cries went unheard. A child is supposed to outlive their parent, grow old with their siblings and one day have children of their own. Chris left us still just a child. Please help my family and I honor Chris’ memory and raise awareness for the prevention of suicide.
While Kristin has reached her original (modest) monetary goal, I ask that you consider donating to Kristin's efforts to not only honor her brother, but to honor all those in our military who have died by their own hand in the hope that this money and the efforts to raise awareness and further education and efforts at suicide prevention will save lives. And help Kristin and her family heal.
