DMAX Foundation: Finding Strength in Broken Places

DMAX Foundation will host "Finding Strength in Broken Places" on April 24 at The Shipley School (825 Montgomery Ave., Bryn Mawr). Keynote speaker Dr. Lise DeGuire will discuss resilience and hope. Tom Burgoyne, Phillie Phanatic for 30 years, will talk about how love can make a difference in people’s lives. The event will be moderated by Darcy Gruttadaro, Director of the Center for Workplace Mental Health at the American Psychiatric Association.

The VIP Reception, including Phanatic meet and greet, begins at 5:45 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the formal program begins at 7 p.m.

Having faced the deaths by suicide of four of her family members, and her own traumatic journey as a burn survivor, Dr. Lise DeGuire is no stranger to devastating loss, depression and serious suicidal thoughts. Yet Lise survived and has, in fact, thrived. Come listen as she shares her amazing journey and the resilience that led to her current life as a psychologist, wife, and mother in her“fairy tale marriage.” We can all learn from her story.

Students can register for free in advance with ID. For additional information and tickets, visit:
