“I want to make a difference in the lives of people that are having difficulty in their emotional and social wellbeing. As I went through the experience of losing my father at a young age, I came to realize that there are gaps in our social and mental care of each other as a community and society. I decided to be part of trying to help others in their struggles to hopefully make the journey through life better for others.” – Cary Christie
