“Every young person has their own unique perspective and understanding of what dying, death and grief mean to them. In the work that I have done to date, I have seen firsthand the importance of creating a safe, non-judgemental space for children and youth to share, normalize and validate their thoughts, fears, and emotions around loss and grief. I am truly honoured and excited to be a member of the C.A.N.D.Y. Café team.”
