Back in September of 2009 long-time BME supporter and IAM Member Namicoj passed away. Shannon, the mother of Mike’s son Morgan is going to be participating in the Out of the Darkness walk in Indianapolis, IN. Here’s the e-mail from Shannon:
I don’t know how many people know, but Mike Shaw aka namicoj passed away September 2009 by suicide. He was a huge fan of BME and all that it stands for. I was curious if you guys would help put out the word for his Indianapolis friends that there is an Out of the Darkness walk In Indianapolis, IN and we have a team walking in his memory called Mike’s Crew. Shirts are being sold for $15 by Mike’s mom. If anyone needs to get ahold of me my email is email@example.com. My name is Shannon Coon, mother of his 10 y/o son, Morgan. I would greatly appreciate the help if possible. I didn’t know all his BME friends and have no way of getting in contact with them. Here is a link to donate or sign up to walk.
Shannon will be walking in support of The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 33,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
Feel free to contact Shannon if you have any questions regarding the shirts, and if you’re able, please give a little to the cause.
