    Just wanted to say I was very touched by the many videos I’ve seen of this group. My wife of 11 years just passed away 7 weeks ago after a 13 month battle with stage IV colon cancer – she was 41, I am 46. I have 2 incredible boys – age 3 and age 7. Needless to say I am devastated, lost, shocked, numb. I found great comfort in listening to the videos of the men in the group. I just wish the group were local to me – I live in the Northwest Side of Chicago. Is there any similar type support groups in the Chicago area?

    Hi Mike,
    I live in the Northwest part of Chicago too and lost my husband last year in a tragic car accident…there is a support group for people who have lost spouses, children, grandparents, etc. it is through Rainbow Hospice and is called “Good Mourning”. You can look up online…you can email me if you have any other questions at lizziekrolak@yahoo.com. I have two kids and the support group is for them as well. I hope this helps…I’m so sorry about your wife.

    I love that they got into each other’s stories. Those are the best parts of leaving a legacy – leaving a dialogue and discourse. I did a blog about another dad who did this with his story is really touching.

    Hi I lost my mother as a child, I was 4, she died of breast cancer. I have gone through the pain these children will unfortunately go through and I want to be there for them. I am on the North east side of Chicago, in Edgewater and would like to know if there is a group. I feel as though I could help males with children more as I would help fill in the female gap. But I’m also open to being a friend to females who have lost their husbands and lending a hand. I work part time and have my own child who will be 1 tomorrow! And a very supportive and adoring husband. I can share my experiences with anyone young or old or be the person that helps with homework, cooking, doctor appointments, school things, girl talks (probably not as good with boy talks but again open to that too). my email is mariasolanki@gmail.com
