Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation’s safety awareness campaign has reached millions.
Now the organisation is establishing special Road Trauma Grief Support Packages for families who suffer the unimaginable tragedy of losing a child to road trauma.
Tom’s mother Michelle McLaughlin is calling on all Australians to help raise $150,000 to fund the 12-month long care packages, each containing vouchers for childcare, cleaning, domestic, and cooking services - filling a gap felt firsthand by Michelle.
The death of a child is considered the worst stressor a person can go through. Studies have found that bereaved parents, particularly mothers, are at an increased risk of depression, anxiety, PTSD, C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), suicide, panic disorders, substance abuse, immune and cardiovascular disease as well as cancers.
The Road Trauma Grief Service Packages will make walking that first year a tiny bit easier for affected families, better supporting this extremely vulnerable group.
