View Full Version : Children of PALS

26th May 2011, 22:57
My name is Jodi O'Donnell-Ames and I have three children- all of whom have lost a parent to ALS. I lost my husband Kevin Gerard O'Donnell in 2001 to ALS. I remarried and my husband lost his wife to ALS. He had a six and 8 year old at the time. Because I want to help the children who live with ALS, I am starting a non-profit for children of PALS called Hope Loves Company for patients in the tri-state area (initially) and need feedback. How can I help your children?

My goals are to offer a free kids' day, support group and website (which is now being created) for peer support.

I am just starting and am open to suggestion.

Thank you so much for helping me to help your families!

sorry to hear of your losses,
here is a local based charity i am aware of- bereavement for children -http://www.jeremiahsjourney.org.uk/
there is a national one: winstons wish
they both do days out, support groups and websites
perhaps a start would be to explore with some other groups what children have found useful
