How Exercise or Movement Has Helped You

When we come together as The Compassionate Friends, we find support, community, and common ground.

                                            – Pamela Hagens, Samuel’s Mom

Hear from Pamela Hagens, TCF Board of Director’s member, as she shares how dance, movement, and nutrition have helped her to cope with the loss of her son, Samuel. She also shares about the positive and meaningful impact that TCF has had on her life.

Pamela supports The Compassionate Friends because of the difference TCF has made in her life and the life of her family. Please join Pamela in giving a gift to support all our grieving families during this season when our grief is even harder to cope with.


Coping with grief and loss is challenging and everyone navigates grief differently. Like Pamela, some use exercise and physical activity to help. Has exercise and movement helped you with your grief? If so, we’d love to hear how it has helped you. Please share in the comments below
