A mother slips away from cancer. A brother dies in a car accident. A father is shot. When a loved one dies, what happens to the surviving child? Where can a child turn to for support? What resources do we have in Nevada, and why did it take until this month for a children's grief center finally open in Southern Nevada? We talk to the founders of two grief centers, and survivors on how they dealt with their family tragedies.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
