I Am Here:
As each year passes, I am more grateful that I am here. When my Aunt Spankie saved my life, I had no idea how my life would change others. I never take it for granted. As bad as that day was, it changed my life for the better. Today, my goal and my passion are to STOP suicide through education. Being a QPR certified instructor has given me the opportunity to repay the favor for what my Aunt Spankie did for me.
“Miss Fonda is a hero. What’s she is doing is changing lives. Take the time to take her QPR class to learn the signs and facts of depression.
You could end up saving someone else’s life as well."

"[Fonda] You have a special gift. Where it comes from, I know not. But if you could can it and teach it, many lives would be saved from suicide."
Paul Quinnett, Founder & CEO of the QPR Institute
Thank you so much for offering this opportunity to help people through better awareness and action. I apologize for crying a few times during your presentation, I worry I might have been a distraction. The sharing of your story and the stories of others while guiding us to be more proactive without judgment really touched me. Thank you again for your time, expertise, and involvement.
