Raw and honest: my story

Speaker: Robin Bailey

Robin Bailey has faced a lot of grief in her life. From the loss of her father, at age 11, to the suicide of her husband in 2014, and then the death of her soul mate in 2018. Robin has had to find a way to navigate life through heartbreak.

She has never really spoken publicly about what the last six years have felt like for her and her children, because it’s been too painful to say a lot of these things out loud. 

Robin will share her story right now and hope that it can help others find hope and keep going.
