292: Katy Ryan – KinderMourn

There’s NOTHING easy about losing a family member. That heartbreak must be magnified exponentially when it comes to losing a child. In Charlotte, families who do suffer this life-altering event don’t have to go it alone.

Since 1978, KinderMourn has helped bereaved parents, grieving children and teens by offering support and counseling programs, creating awareness of bereavement issues and empowering the community to assist those who have suffered though this loss.

One of the many ways they bring their message and mission to the greater community is through the annual “Hope Floats” duck race. To tell us all about it, we have Katy Ryan, KinderMourn’s Executive Director, and KinderMourn parent, Kelly Burton.
