Kathy Mullen is an angel mom, music lover, and an adventure seeker focused on healthy, joyful living. She started Mullen’s Miracles in honor of her son, Eric, whom she lost to suicide on October 2, 2018. Even with medical personnel, trauma therapists, and recovery programs, it was overwhelming sorting through the abundance of resource options while losing the battle against time to find the help Eric so desperately needed while he was alive.
“Before I left Eric’s hospital bed, I committed to helping others live healthier lives by finding ways to ‘fill the gaps’ we had experienced. Mullen’s Miracles exists to make your journey easier so your ‘Eric’ can survive and live a long, beautiful life.”
Can I tell you how much Kathy inspires me?
I remember our lunch at Avalon when Kathy was so shattered after losing her son, Eric. As a mother, I could not imagine how Kathy would ever smile again. Today, I see her dazzling smile on Facebook. Today, I am now carrying the mantle of a grieving widow. My Pete was an organ recipient given 13 1/2 years of extra life from a family who suffered an unimaginable loss, providing the most beautiful gift of life to another.
I wish I knew them to thank them. What you are doing with Mullen’s Miracles is reconnecting broken threads of a once whole love. Kathy’s journey makes me know that I will indeed smile again.
I love when people who have been through hell walk out of the flames carrying buckets of water for those still consumed by the fire.
