There is no elevator to success, you must take the stairs



Triumph in Tragedy was founded to inspire and give hope to those needing guidance in their darkest hour from profound loss or other life changing events. The foundation is focused on providing the tools and resources needed to help those that are hurting began to heal and make a difference. When my son died July 12, 2007 I was lost emotionally and spiritually. I saw 3 different therapists with no connection or success until I met one who gave me more awareness and insight than I thought possible. My mission is to connect those that are hurting with the help they need through the resources nessesary to regain confidence and independence. Creating a healthy environment for growth and improve quality of life through healing and restoration is our goal. Through donations and fundraising we are dedicated to make  a difference in the lives of women.
