When her husband took his life with no warning, Brandi and her two sons were blindsided and left to pick up the pieces. They all handled their grief in different ways: Brandi entered the world of bodybuilding, and her sons headed down two very different paths. Brandi has found strength and healing by sharing her story, and has learned to communicate more directly with her loved ones. She sheds light on this topic that is seen by many as shameful and taboo, and shares how those in similar situations can help their friends or family members who may be struggling or have lost a loved one to suicide.

Tune in and be inspired by her strength of spirit as she shares her story on this episode of Suddenly Stronger.
