Grieving Mother Creates National Convention to Improve Grief Literacy

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

Lynda Cheldelin Fell faced every parent’s worst nightmare when her teen daughter was killed in a car accident in 2009. She first poured her grief into a blog, then a book, then a radio show, film production, and now the first annual National Grief & Hope Convention, offering an influential roster of world visionaries and speakers who will share their personal journey to help raise grief awareness and education.

Scheduled at the JW Marriott Indianapolis’ Grand Ballroom on April 16 – 18, 2015, the convention is open to the public and will include exhibitors, awards ceremony, award winning entertainment, and a World Visionary Dinner hosted by Cheldelin Fell and Dr. Ken Druck, an international expert on resilience and healing after loss.

“Loss comes in many forms and is an inevitable part of life, yet the aftermath of loss remains poorly understood. The convention is at the forefront of a movement working to update old myths, and lay a better foundation for understanding and supporting grievers for generations to come,” states Cheldelin Fell. “Our nation is facing new and daunting challenges when it comes to dealing with life’s many losses. So are we, as individuals. The need to upgrade our ‘grief literacy’ operating systems and software is crucial,” states Dr. Druck.
