Join a national conversation on bereavement

By: Robin Cogan, MEd, RN, NCSN

The “silent storm” of grief could be the next epidemic that spreads throughout our country. How could it not be, when almost 250,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. Every day more than 130,000 new cases are being diagnosed and more than 1,000 people die. That translates to a new COVID case every second and one death every 107 seconds according to Johns Hopkins data cited in USA Today.

Forevermore is hosting a free event to deepen the understanding of how grief impacts us individually and as a nation. 

Join in a national conversation on how the death of a loved one impacts us all. Personal stories, hard facts, solace in song, and hope for the future.
