Speakers, including Mike Welch and his daughter Lena Welch, Muriel Mena, student at Whitman Hanson High School and Christine Dube, an empowerHER mentor from Boston, shared their insight into how the program has made a significant impact on their lives as they each navigate the challenging terrain of grief.
