The significant anniversaries this year inspired me to launch our first ACCESS book, Surviving Sudden Loss: Stories from those who have lived it, to share what has worked at ACCESS with the world. We have found that learning about anothers journey through grief can provide a unique comfort to others experiencing loss. With a foreword written by Mayor Rudy Giuliani, this book contains 28 firsthand accounts of grief and survival in the wake of the sudden loss of a loved one.
The book presents real-life voices of people courageously and vulnerably sharing their stories of surviving tragic losses and the remarkable people they have become through their survival.
The stories of survival in this book are for:
– those who have lost loved ones tragically
– family members and friends who are helping the bereaved through their grief
– crisis response teams who interact with those who have suddenly lost loved ones
– everyone with loved ones in their lives
Whether you have lost a loved one or not, these stories will touch you.
