Kaitlyn Elkins Memorial Fund

My daughter Kaitlyn was my daughter Stephanie’s only sibling. She has been devastated also by Kaitlyn’s loss. Stephanie is a very giving, compassionate soul and she wants to do something for suicide prevention so she started this fund which will go directly to the Wake Forest School of Medicine’s Wellness fund that is in Kaitlyn’s name that is devoted to suicide prevention, as the funds are accumulated. When Kaitlyn died, her med school started a fund in their Wellness program in Kaitlyn’s name that will be ongoing and help students with depression, suicide prevention, and to let them feel no fear in seeking help. This is so important. The fund Stephanie is starting will go directly into the Wake fund. I’m so proud of Stephanie for this. We all want to help in suicide prevention and fight the stigma of mental illness of any kind.



About gatito2

My name is Rhonda. I'm a registered nurse, for the last 20 years, that has not been able to work since the day I learned of my daughter's death by suicide 4-12-13. (She actually died 4-11-13 and her body was not found until the 12th) Me and my husband have been married for 32 years and he's a wonderful man. We grieve in different ways. He works, I write. This is my journey through this horrible land of losing a child..
