21-06-2023 • 33 mins

Fawna Asfaw was an only child who had her world turned upside down when she lost not just one, but both of her parents at a young age. It's unimaginable. She didn't know how to handle all that grief, so she turned to alcohol. As you may have guessed, that led Fawna down a dangerous and devastating path. In this episode of Grieving Out Loud, your host, Angela Kennecke, sits down with Fawna to talk about how she navigated her darkest moments and eventually found a way back to a life filled with joy and purpose. Her journey serves as a reminder that no matter how deep our pain may be, there is always hope.

Also, be sure to check out Fawna's book and her recovery coaching.
