Maggie and Alejandro
In 2013, I lost my husband, Alejandro, to cancer. Grieving is so difficult and overwhelming and unlike anything I’ve had to deal with before. At HeartLight Center, I found comfort in the total openness and understanding of other people who had experienced similar loss. My family and friends are loving and sympathetic, but the people who listen to me at HeartLight really understand my loss and my grief. It is an incredibly welcoming place where I feel completely free to express my grief openly—which is so important and helpful—and listening to others’ stories helps me work through my understanding of my own story.
