TRAG

Teenagers Road Accident Group

After Tyler died  I became a volunteer with Teenagers Road Accident Group (TRAG). I came across this organisation when I was looking for a support group of parents who had lost a child to road trauma. I found TRAG and this has been my calling. I never ever imagined that I would publicly speak about my trauma. We present to over 4000 students per year. We present at the Mornington Community Theatre and Casey Grammar during June and July each year. Here we have schools attend these venues with their Yr 12 students. Sometimes parents will bring their child along who has already left school before year 12 to see this program as it is so very important to all drivers. Anyone is welcome. There is no charge. We all volunteer our time. This program is extremely powerful and very confronting resulting in some students having to remove themselves from the auditorium. I find it extremely difficult presenting our story but I put myself through the pain and tears to hopefully save another family from enduring this heart break. If Tyler’s story can save a life. We also present at Somers Camp during January and at HMAS Cerberus in December before the seamen head home for Christmas.
If your child’s school is not attending TRAG ask them why not?

Julie

While having lunch with my dear friend Julie, it was a bitter sweet moment. A great catch up but our final good bye. I said to Julie I thought that she needed to have fingerprint jewellery created for her children. I expressed how much my piece with Tyler’s fingerprint impression means to me. Weeks went by and I was holidaying with my family. I kept thinking about this. After lots of champagne and conversations with some friends they encouraged me to start my own business. Julie also encouraged me as

Polly

My very close friend Chris had been told her beautiful Hushanda Polly had leukaemia. Polly lived with this for 9 months when the time came for her to be put to sleep and go over the rainbow bridge. Polly will be running through the meadows with her ears flapping with all her besties and Hushanda brothers and sisters. She is so truly missed by her family. I wanted to create Polly’s toe impression in a special piece for Chris to wear close to her heart. I’ve named the pet collection
