"Shortly after moving to Lewiston, ID, my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer. This was a devastating diagnosis for us and our two young children. After he passed away, from a 10 month battle with cancer, Willow Center has been a critical aspect of our family's grief/grieving process. We found ourselves in an unknown land, with no friends, on the precipice of sadness. Willow Center and it's highly trained counselors are carefully guiding my family back from one of the darkest places we have ever been emotionally. Their services are critical to us as well as so many others from the region."


"I attended the Willow Center when I was 10 or 11.  My dad passed away.  My mom brought myself and my brother to the Willow Center to attend group.  My brother raised a fuss about it but he ended up loving it.

It changed a lot of things for me.  I remember the firs time I went and had the realization there actually are other kids like me going through the same thing.  It really was huger for me and I wouldn't be the same if my mom hadn't brought me to Willow."



“Going to the Willow Center has been a different experience for each of us but I have been so impressed with the tools each of my kids have been taught and given in helping them deal with their grief in their own way, not to mention the tools and insights I have been endowed with.  The love and sincerity of the volunteers is extraordinary and genuine.  In fact, they are the ones who have helped my kids feel the most comfort and are the biggest reason we continue to return.  I will forever be grateful for the Willow Center and those who make is possible for people and families like mine to move forward with life in a healthy way.  I truly sing its praises.”
