More on how Judi's House has impacted our Fit Soldiers Family! Here is a little note from Nancy and the impact Judi's House has made on her family.
My name is Nancy Condon, and I am thrilled that “Fit Soldiers” is raising money for a non-profit group that has impacted me, but especially my daughters, Allison and Clare. The foundation that we have benefited from is “Judi’s House.” It is a non-profit organization located in Denver and was founded by our former quarterback of the Denver Bronco’s, Brian Griese. Judi’s House is a bereavement center for families who have lost a loved one to any kind of death.
On June 4th of 2010, the most horrific act happened to my family. My ex-husband committed suicide and left my two daughters without a father. Death is hard enough to try to understand, but to add in the element of suicide was overwhelming to deal with.
We had heard of great things about Judi’s House and 6 months later, Alli, Clare and I were part of this new journey of trying to understand and learn how to cope without their dad. This center is like no other. It is free to everyone, and we participated in a 10 week grieving class which met once a week. My children felt safe sharing their feelings with other kids and staff about the loss of their dad.
What I am most impressed with at Judi’s House is they do not want anyone to forget about their loved one. Their idea is that we will never get over this tragedy, but we can learn to get through this on a day to day basis. My girls enjoyed that they were with other kids their same age dealing with the same issues regarding death and I was in a group with other grieving adults.
It is approaching almost two years since their dad took his life and I can’t believe how far we have all come. I truly believe the reason why we are doing so well is due to the counseling we received at Judi’s House. We have definitely hit are bumps in the road the last 18 months, but with the tools we learned in our counseling have helped us get back on track and move forward in a positive way.
If you have any questions regarding Judi’s House, please feel free to go to the web-site Judi’sHouse.org.
Nancy, Alli and Clare
Thank You for your support!
