About Lisa

Help me turn Losing Your Parents into a non profit!Donate Now I lost both parents to cancer at 22 & 27. Let's talk about stuff that's hard, ways you can move forward in your life and how we can bridge the gap from grief to peace when the weird stuff comes up. My intention is to connect with as many adult orphans as possible and those of us who have lost our mothers, our fathers or both parents, at any age, through the arts, life experiments, looking inward and turning pain into something positive.
