Be inspired by a grieving mom’s mission to prevent further suicides and change the conversation on mental health, in Scattering CJ.
When Air Force veteran CJ Twomey ended his life at age 20, his family was plunged into grief. In a moment of desperate inspiration, his mother Hallie put a call out to the world on social media: would a handful of sympathetic travelers help fulfill her son’s ambition to see all the corners of the earth by scattering some of his ashes in a place of beauty or special meaning to them? It was a call that would resonate beyond her wildest expectations; the world answered and the loss of one became the inspiring, heart-felt mission of thousands.
Scattering CJ explores one family’s journey through grief, and the power of human connection and of community. It is about the spontaneous goodness of humanity that a grieving mom facilitated in the darkest of moments and the profound effects for healing and awareness that have touched so many. Scattering CJ catalyzes conversations organically about loss and empathy and shows how to find hope beyond hurt.
