This is the second time I read about Keanu talk about his still born baby. I am glad he spoke.
Like Keanu, I talk about Andrew. It is not about glorifying myself, but to give a voice to bereaved parents. I constantly have new friends, and it is to hope they can watch this you tube and hopefully they can help their friends who have bereaved friends.
Yesterday was Andrew's 26th anniversary.
When I wrote my book, Diary of a berreaved mother, it was to help new
bereaved mothers and to help myself. Television New Zealand asked me
if I wanted to help them do a documentary. It was to help other
It was very hard to do the documentary.
Today is the first birthday of a bereaved mum after her baby had died.
This blog is for you.
The TV Program is available in New Zealand only.
"Most people know me, but don't know my story. At the age of 3, I watched my father leave. I attended four different high schools and struggled with dyslexia, making my education more challenging than it is for most. Eventually I left high school without earning a diploma. At the age of 23, my closest friend River Phoenix died of a drug overdose. In 1998, I met Jennifer Syme. We fell instantly in love and by 1999, Jennifer was pregnant with our daughter. Sadly, after eight months, our child was born stillborn. We were devastated by her death and it eventually ended our relationship. 18 months later, Jennifer died in a car accident. Since then I avoid serious relationships and having kids. My younger sister had lukemia. Today she is cured, and I donated 70% of my gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia. I am one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. I don't have any bodyguards and do not wear fancy clothes. And even though I'm worth $100 million, I still ride the subway and I love it! So in the end, I think we can all pretty well agree that even in the face of tragedy, a stellar person can thrive. No matter what's going on in your life, you can overcome it! Life is worth living."
