Please support The Tony Brown Foundation on its journey to help heal the hearts of bereaved families in loving memory of all children.

Raising money to fund an all expense trip to help heal a bereaved parent on their journey after the loss of a child. The Tony Brown foundation is granting a wish to one bereaved parent to attend The National/International Compassionate Friends Conference in California this year.
A national conference of The Compassionate Friends is unlike any other conference you may ever attend. It is a place where you can go and know that you truly are not alone as you travel your grief journey. Every person comes for the same reason a child has died. It is a place where "friendship, understanding, and hope" are more than just words.

For almost three and a half decades, The Compassionate Friends has held national conferences in different locations, from the east coast to the west coast, from north to south. Today it’s normal to have 1100-1400 bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents attend. Of that number, it usually is the first TCF National Conference for over a quarter of those attending. Those new to TCF conferences are given a special butterfly sticker to wear on their nametag so that others may notice and give them special hugs. Everyone feels they are in a place where they belong. We often say that those at the conference are friends you simply have not yet met.
