Welcome to the Ron L. Okuma memorial fundraising page

I have been lovingly supported by SOSL since November 2016, when I participated in a closed group called Beyond Survival. It was a very small, intimate group of 8 participants and 2 facilitators and we shared our stories of loss, cried, supported, laughed and explored our uniquely personal and emotional experiences of surviving the suicide of a loved one. Our group bonded together with great heart, loving kindness, high regard and sincerely caring support of each other. We have stayed together and now meet once a month for dinner...still sharing our stories, support, experiences and laughter as we now move forward with our lives. I truly believe in the loving support, presence and understanding that the SOSL community embraces each of it’s survivors with.  

Every day, suicide...the loss of a loved one by suicide, has a devastating impact on families...children, parents, spouses, grandparents, siblings, friends, partners. There are always so many more questions than answers. It is difficult to talk about or even seek help in the aftermath of suicide, because there is so much stigma, shame, blame and judgment attached to it. The annual Walk In Remembrance With Hope provides support for those left behind after suicide and raises awareness about the impact and prevention of suicide. The funds raised from this event stay in San Diego to touch the lives of San Diegans through two non-profits that work in this field...SOSL and Directing Change.

Please join me and my team mates as we walk, or continue to support us through your donations. With many loving blessings, christy

I AM A SURVIVOR...I AM A WARRIOR WOMAN...I AM COURAGEOUS
I AM LIVING FORWARD...ONE STEP, ONE BREATH, ONE DAY AT A TIME.
I AM A SURVIVOR...HEALING, HOPE-FILLED AND RESILIENT.
