No More "S" Word; A Daughter's Legacy
Today, my conversation is with Jamie Fabroa. She lost her father Wilmer, to suicide 10 years ago but he is still always with her in heart. Jamie now works to bring awareness to help prevent suicide by furthering conversation and not hiding behind the "s" word!
Just 4 days before Jamie's 25th Birthday, she would lose her father to suicide. From that moment, Jamie's life would never be the same. The pain became unbearable, unlivable when after a few attempts to take her own life, she courageously found solace, serenity, strength and forgiveness in her own healing through supporting others. Possessing training and certification in SAFEtalk and ASIST, Jamie is a relentless stand on disappearing stigma surrounding the 'S', word.
This is a powerful conversation that will help bring hope that we all can survive!

Jamie recommends this documentary HEAL with Deepak Chopra
And I recommend the book SIGNS; The Secret Language of the Universe by Laura Lynn Jackson
as well as the Docuseries in Netflix called Surviving Death
