FFDA helps families by providing free education and guidance to caregivers so that they, in turn, can help their loved ones. As a Board member and caregiver, I am proud to support the work of FFDA by making an annual donation. I encourage you to join me in making a gift to sustain this important work.
Eleven years after the death of my brother, my sister lost her mother (my stepmother) to cancer. The heartache of losing her mother compounded her depression. Shortly afterwards she was correctly diagnosed with bipolar disorder and started on her path towards wellness.
As I have learned from my sister, those who are living with bipolar disorder face a life-long journey to manage their illness. It is incredibly important for their families and caregiver to receive ongoing education. This is why I support Families for Depression Awareness. I hope you will make a donation to help educate families dealing with depression like mine.
