Ann Marie D'Aliso
Ann Marie D’Aliso and her husband, Patrick, (high school football coach and health teacher), lost their son, Pat, to suicide on May 19, 2004 at 16 years of age. Nobody feels the death of a child more than a mother, but together with her husband, Ann Marie worked through the terrible trauma that ensued. Now she serves on the board of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, has a Survivor Support Group, and speaks in school assemblies on suicide prevention and recovery through forgiveness. By sharing her story Ann Marie hopes “others might be saved”.
