“Life is Hard and Grief is Harder”

“Life is Hard and Grief is Harder”

In 2020, all of Camp Kerry’s programs went online. Yet the COVID-19 restrictions also gave us an opportunity to envision new ways of cultivating community, including creating the virtual perinatal loss group.

The format allowed women and families from communities across Canada to participate in our grief support groups. Trish and Kayren shared how freeing it was to be vulnerable with people they wouldn’t run into in other situations.

Monthly Giving

In Canada there is little to no government funding designated for bereavement care, yet it is well documented that unresolved grief can lead to an array of mental health concerns including; anxiety, depression, addiction, and more.

For every loss, it is estimated that at least five people will be significantly impacted, yet very few have access to adequate long-term supports.

Every donation that you give to the Lumara helps us to provide support to children, youth, adults, and families impacted by loss and to those living with a serious illness. As a result of people like you, lives are being transformed across Canada.

By becoming a sustaining partner through Giving Monthly donations you can help us provide hope and support life after loss.
