September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and all month long – the PowerPLAY is bringing you stories on awareness, prevention and information. We’ll talk to families reeling from the loss of a loved one; how we can bring more awareness to the signs and resources available; and what you can do to help you or someone you know get the help they need.

Our first episode is near and dear to my heart. My husband has not just had to live through the pain and anger of a loved one committing suicide once, but twice. First, his father, when Greg was just a teenager. He literally held his father's body while another family member cut the rope his dad used to hang himself. After attempts of trying to revive him, he had to deal with the shock of his father being dead.

Then just three years ago, after what was described as an argument in the house where his oldest was living, Jamie took a gun from the home and was found dead two days later.

But despite the weight of the pain these two tragic losses held, Greg found purpose in their deaths.

My husband, Gregory Magras, tells his story for the first time on the PowerPLAY.
