Salt Water in the Media

“I started Salt Water because it was the website that I couldn’t find. I wanted someplace that was geared toward loss more broadly … a site where people could come in whatever place they were in and feel welcome and where there is no judgment to the loss.”

We hear the story of Jimmy who died at the age of 21 after an eight year brain cancer odyssey. This episode includes so many poignant, informative and beautiful messages as a mother tells her story of love and loss.

How do you go on living after your child’s life ends? How do you continue to find connection, beauty and meaning when someone we can’t live without dies? This is the question Margo Fowkes faced when her son Jimmy died of brain cancer at the age of 21.

Project Grief creator Danica Thurber interviews Margo about her experience with loss and invites her to share tips on how to support a grieving friend.

Host Kitty O’Neal talks to Margo Fowkes about how to find comfort and support after a devastating loss.

Rather than criticize people for saying or doing the “wrong” thing, Salt Water offers practical suggestions and encouragement for those who want to help, along with gentle reminders of what a griever might find hurtful despite a loved one’s best intentions.

Poet Maya Stein shares two of Margo’s essays on her website “Grief Becomes You.”

Margo offers practical suggestions on how to support a grieving colleague, friend or family member.

Margo talks to host Tamara Bahlhorn about grieving the death of her only son, the ways her grief has changed over time and offers hope for other grievers.
