It breaks my heart to tell you that my sister Kassidi took her own life, four months after being sexually assaulted.
After the assault, my once vibrant, bubbly, 20-year-old sister was changed forever. Support wasn’t readily available for Kassidi when she needed it most — she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and was placed on a four month wait list for counselling. Kassidi took her own life last November, just weeks before her first appointment.
I can’t let what happened to my sister happen to anyone else. Please sign my petition urging increased support for sexual assault survivors.
Kassidi was my best friend. She had the biggest heart and would go out of her way to help others. I’ve set out to help others in her memory. My family fought to have Kassidi’s name released so that we can raise awareness about the unthinkable challenges that sexual assault survivors face in a system stacked against them.
We’re calling on increased support for sexual assault survivors — including free, timely counselling and legal advice — and sentencing that reflects the devastating impact sexual assault has on survivors. I need your help to bring about change — will you sign my petition today?
Thank you for joining me in standing with Kassidi and sexual assault survivors everywhere.
