Thank You Suzanne & Bob!
Because of YOUR willingness to Stand Up For a Friendship to support a new Walk With Sally match through it’s first critical year, we were able to match Clarissa & Jacqueline on February 21, 2018.
Clarissa & Jackie
Jackie is 17 years old and coping with the loss of her incredibly strong mother, Olga. Olga passed away from breast & lung cancer in November of 2017. Jackie is extremely bright, and very focused as she enters her last couple years of high school. Although she has taken on a motherly role for her little brother, she knows she needs a mentor that understands. Someone with whom she can share her grief and learn how to deal with her mom’s death.
Clarissa lost her brother to cancer in 2013. He left behind two children that made it through due to the support system of the whole family. Clarissa has exposed Jackie to meditation and mindfulness to find calm in those moments of anger and sadness. Jackie shared, “She’s easy to talk to about anything I have going on.” We know these two will thrive better together!!
