Grief Specialist, Award-Winning Author, Speaker, Executive Coach, who established the Foundation for Grieving Children, Inc., Mary M. McCambridge (Mary Mac) shares her over 35 years’ experience with those who are grieving the death of a loved one.
Before completing college, Mary Mac had experienced the death of four friends – two teenagers to drunk drivers and two college students to inoperable cancer. Later she would sustain many other deaths of family members and close friends including the murder of her former husband’s 11 year-old daughter, which took them on an 18 year journey to help solve the crime. It was these life experiences that led her to become involved in the field of bereavement.
