Amy Secretary fighting for Suicide Prevention

Amy Murphy

Co-Founder & Secretary

" I am a busy mom, typically overcommitting myself and then becoming flustered and frustrated by it.  I struggle with my own anxiety and depression. I tend to go all in, I am loyal, loving, compassionate and a cheerleader at heart.  I was raised in the Wells community and chose to raise my children here because as we say, “Once a warrior, always a warrior”. 

Angela and I became friends 10 years ago when our boys began wrestling together on the Wells Rec wrestling team.  We have gone on many adventures together over the years, they are our chosen family. She is my soul sister. I love her boys as my own, just as she loves my children as her own.  When Trent died, it shook us all and we were left feeling helpless.  Stay; For Life has given us a purpose and a way to move through our grief to help others in the fight for suicide prevention."
