I was working towards starting my own anti-bullying and suicide prevention campaign, when coincidentally Heather walked into my life. Things simply fell into place. I am very passionate about stopping the increase of adolescent suicide in our community, as it has been very prevalent in my personal life. I knew that Heather’s big heart and beautiful message was exactly where I needed to be.
