Words of a Teenager After Losing Her Mother
By Shira Noik

Nine months after losing her mother, Shira Noik, aged seventeen, answers questions about everything from having to celebrate the first birthday without her mother, the last few days before her mother passed away, the difficulty of sitting shiva as a teenager, managing friends and their expectations, feeling intense emotions, dealing with triggers and more. This is a fantastic conversation for other teens to hear as well as those supporting teens with their loss.
