Skye Page

My name is Skye Page and I am originally from rural North Carolina, but I am currently living in Norfolk, VA on our 31' sailboat. I have been writing for years, mainly for myself, but recently I've been writing about our sailing adventures on our blog, Mentally Sailing. I've also written about grief and loss in order to help me process things that will never truly be understood. I have personal experience with death and grief, having experienced the years after my oldest brother, Dakota, died from medulloblastoma, a brain tumor. His life, and death, lead to my passion for helping others who are experiencing the loss of a loved one and it led to the understanding of just how important palliative care and the difference a supportive community can make for so many people. I want nothing more than to let others know that they are not alone. I hear you, I see you, I am with you.
