Episode 83: Find Your Harbor: Life in the Wake of Loss featuring Margo Fowkes
After her son Jimmy died of a cancer rarely found in children, Margo Fowkes found that what helped her through her profound grief the most was other people leaving space in the world for him. She discovered support in loved ones talking about Jimmy and sharing their experience of losing him. She founded the Salt Water community to help people heal and live after their own devastating loss–a child, a sibling, a spouse, a parent, a close friend– and to provide a safe harbor where those grieving can find comfort, support and tools to survive their loss and rebuild their life. In this episode Margo shares Jimmy’s story and talks about how she’s navigated a grief that she has come to understand will forever come in waves.
