To provide a means for individuals to connect with others experiencing similar difficult life events, find local resources and receive daily inspiration. It is our hope that this site will assist in your healing process as you connect and engage with others who also are experiencing a difficult time in life.
My Compassion Connection was created in memory of Craig Steven Forstrom by his widow, Robin Forstrom Cole. Craig passed away suddenly at the age of 37 from a cancer-related illness, leaving behind a pregnant wife and 2 step-sons.
Through Robin’s personal struggles with grief, the support she received from others, and in working with countless hurting individuals through various grief support organizations, the concept of My Compassion Connection was formed.
Connect & Chat:
Members have the ability to connect and chat anonymously with others who share similar experiences and needs. Many people who have worked through the Grief process may not be trained counselors, but can offer a valuable resource to those who are still coping with grief and/or tragedy by providing comfort and a caring person who is willing to listen and share their experiences.
Member information such as name, address, email, etc. is strictly confidential and will not be shared with other members.
My Compassion Connection will allow members who are dealing with difficult life experiences such as death, illness, divorce, etc. to access information on local support programs.
Non-profit, accredited, organizations such as support groups, governmental agencies or other charities which provide information or services in the community are welcome to register and post resources and information without charge.
Professional, licensed counselors or therapists are allowed to register so long as they are willing to provide their services to members on a no-charge basis.
Understanding & Working through your Grief Workshops are Anonymous & Free by phone and/or webinar. Those attending are encouraged to participate & share; however, only if & when they feel comfortable. If you are interested in attending, please click “Contact Us” on the home page and let us know that you are interested.
