Mike’s son and only child, Dylan, passed due to a heroin overdose on November 28, 2016, shortly after his 24th birthday and just before reaching six months of continuous sobriety. After attending several grief meetings for parents, Mike saw the obvious lack of participation by fathers. In March 2019, he started Helping Fathers Heal, an affiliate group of Helping Parents Heal. The “closed” group provides a confidential, “safe place” for men to share their challenges and successes in dealing with devastating child loss. In this breakout session, Mike will share his story, including examples of afterlife evidence from Dylan since his passing, and how these “signs” have changed the trajectory of Mike’ path and helped him to find acceptance, humility, serenity and hope.
The International Day of Hope and Healing After Loss, this is a first-of-a-kind, virtual experience bringing together major organizations and leaders in the field devoted to supporting the bereaved. Our mission is to provide an uplifting day of hope and healing to those grieving the loss of a loved one, a loss made more difficult due to this pandemic.
