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.
Our brave and beautiful Husband & Father Nickolas Chislom, took his life on September 29th, 2017 after a long and hard fought battle with Schizophrenia. He was a faithful Christian, ministering in our living room many Sundays and he was also a Veteran he passionately served anyone in need of help, he didn't discriminate between strangers or his loved ones, he gave generously. Each day I witnessed him win the war between his thoughts and the truth. Nickolas traveled the Carolina's with his brother and cousins in an A capella group, singing praises to our Lord. He would take homeless people off the street to have a meal with them and arrange them housing for as long as he could. I heard someone say, "You can't make a difference unless you're different" well glory to God for Nickolas being different. His legacy of serving others will continue on and that's why we are walking to raise money and to raise awareness in honor of his servant heart. We pray to bring more awareness to mental illness and help others that are affected by brain disorders. Our prayer is to start the conversation on how to help others suffering with this illness and to remove the stigma that prevents people from sharing their story and getting the support they desperately need.
I am very thankful to be a new member of The Potters House North Dallas & grateful for my son and I to experience the love and continued support that comes in numerous wonderful ways.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.
Donating to me through this page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of the 43.8 million adults who experience mental illness in a given year.
