Carrie Stark Hugus, author of “Crossing 13: Memoir of a Father’s Suicide,” knows the effect of suicide among children. As a child survivor of suicide Carrie believes “Nothing in our lives happen on accident, sharing my story with others is my purpose. My intention through this personal story is to break down societal stigmas related to suicide and its survivors. My hope is to create sensitivity awareness to bring about change through open dialog.”
