Please Read If You Lost A Parent At A Young Age


Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Katie and I am 17 years old. I lost my dad to cancer 5 years ago and I still have problems dealing with my grief. In my family studies class we were asked to do our final project on some sort of problem that we can associate with and I decided to do the death of a parent at a young age. In order for me to write my report I need to interview people that also lost a mother or father and I thought this would be the ideal place. I have posted my questions below and I was hoping that whoever feels comfortable enough can answer my questions so that I can learn more about other people. If you don't feel comfortable answering this questionnaire on here please mail it to me, my email is katie_fa@hotmail.com. Thank you.
