It was such an honor and joy for our founder, Sara Cobb, to be a recent guest on the
"The Resilience of Grieving Podcast" with host Melo Garcia of After Chloe
Melo and Sara had a heartfelt conversation about grief, faith, family, and love. Sara shared about the
traumatic losses of her two older brothers and how her grief drove her to launch My Grief Connection and
the only known support group specifically for murder-suicide loss survivors in the US.
The episode is now live and available to listen to on Apple Podcasts and Spotify,
in time for the end of Suicide Prevention & Awareness month.
They spoke about some sensitive topics include the death of a child, murder-suicide loss,
and trauma, so please use your discretion about whether or not to listen.
