Crying Out Loud is co-founded by the four of us – Shannon Culver, Sarah Keast, Alexie Landry and Janice Tsao. We met through the shared experience of losing a partner at a young age. As we navigated the complicated world of young widowhood, we found support and community in each other, as well as a common desire to prioritize our mental wellbeing, even in the face of trauma and heartbreak.
Our journeys have been marked by sorrow, joy, humour and anger. We are learning to love, trust, build confidence, and raise little humans who themselves will face a lifetime of navigating the loss of a parent. Yes, our lives are complicated, but through it all we continue to learn about compassion, kindness, community, connection and the importance of embracing the good, the bad, and everything in between.
Thanks for being a part of our journey.
