Two Sisters, One Mission

We’re not therapists or experts. But we battle depression and have lost family members and friends by suicide. It’s in their honor that we began this project. It is our hope and commitment to increase awareness and reduce the stigma and isolation of depression, one story at a time. These stories could truly save lives.

Meet Terry.

After a recent, long and dark bout of depression, she dedicated her life to shining light into the darkness.
