KNX Hero of the Week

Our KNX Hero of the Week is helping people who are grieving pull through.

The idea to open a grief center came about six months after Susan Whitmore lost her 32-year-old daughter to a rare sinus cancer. She says in that moment, her grief steered her into a direction of helping others.

Portraits of Hope: The Parents’ Journey

Spanning a 25-year period, parents and grief specialists chart the course from initial loss, with its gut-wrenching pain and hopelessness, to creating a new and different life that includes meaning, purpose, and joy.

Grief will one day impact all of us. But where do we go? What do we do?

griefHaven® is here to provide you with a true haven where you will find what you need at any hour of the day or night. We are so glad that you will be spending time with us.

This is griefHaven

griefHaven® was started by Susan Whitmore who, after losing her only child, Erika, to cancer found that the kind of love and support she desperately needed did not exist. Here you will find a vast array of proven and unique grief tools, education, support, and lots of love, with new tools being added regularly. All of this equals a life with hope, and it is with hope that we eventually learn to embrace life again. Because everyone deals with grief differently, we have created something for everyone: watch, listen, read, share, learn, and feel embraced by the love put into this true haven of hope. Then, when you are ready, pass along the love to someone else in need.

If you are: the person who has lost someone he or she dearly loves, the person who works with those who are grieving and wants to know more, the person who wants to know how to support someone who is grieving in the healthiest and most healing ways possible, or anyone else impacted by grief in any way, griefHaven® has tools of support for you.

So let griefHaven® be your private hideaway. Let it be the place you visit whenever you want--a foundation from which you may start rebuilding your life or help others rebuild theirs.

We at griefHaven® are like you: people traveling the path of grief. It is one of the hardest things any of us will ever have to do. We are here to show you some of the ways to journey that path, to let you know that you are never alone, and to walk with you as you continue your grief journey. If you look carefully, you will see that there are many footprints on the path in front of you. griefHaven® is the hand that reaches back takes your hand, and says, “I have been where you are now. I am doing well. One day, you will too. Let me help you.” Then, one day, you will do the same for someone who needs you.

Consider this a gift from our hearts to yours.
Now come join us…
