Therapist and widower Jason Clawson on Giving Sunshine to others who have suffered loss
Therapist and widower, Jason Clawson, was devastated when his wife and the mother of his sons passed away from colon cancer a few years ago. After nearly a year of burying his grief in work and family obligations, he reached out to friends and families to create a “healing team” to help his family find joy again. Now he continues to help others who have suffered loss find joy through GivingSunshine.org. His organization gives away care packages and information booklets called Sunshine Baskets. In this episode of the Relentlessly Resilient podcast, Jason joins to discuss his healing journey and how others can help “give sunshine” with the launch of an upcoming Kickstarter fundraising campaign.
Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
