Welcome to my personal NAMIWalks page. I have created this fundraising page because NAMI, and the work they do, is very important to me. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental illness. I have served on the Board of NAMI Iowa for almost a year and work as much as I can on advocacy and children's mental health issues.
My son, Sam, has struggled with mental illness his whole young life. His illness impacts our entire family and getting help is not easy. We are blessed to have an awesome team of therapists, physicians and nurses who work very hard on Sam's behalf, but not all children have these resources.
