The Missing Link

A friend sent me this video this morning. In a couple of days it will be a year since I lost my son Jared to suicide. More and more information is surfacing on what toxic mold does to the brain. It is healing in so many ways to listen to this interview, as it validates what Jared was going through. I found myself nodding my head in agreement with Marie LeBlanc from Manitoba Canada. I am so grateful for those who have been speaking out about this issue. There is a link between mold and suicide. Let’s talk about it….

  1. Toxic mold exposure is devastating to the brain, as I can attest to personally. In honor of Jared, we must not be silent. Suicide resulting from mold exposure is very real, and people need to take this issue seriously.

  2. Wow indeed so sad. My head is suffering and burning from mold toxins…. I have been deserted from my family. I pray I make it through this. Kelli.. I am so sorry for your loss. You are loved by all

    1. So sorry this happens.
      I never had suicide thoughts or attempts until I got sick from mold.
      It happens slowly, so you do not really know when all the stuff started.

      Discusses mental illness diagnoses are not really correct.
      They are symptoms from mold illness.
      Ask, anyone with symptoms or diagnoses will tell you,
      They have a mold problem.
      One women I met thought that her gallbladder surgery finally worked after 3 years. She thought it was due to a change in her body.
      I asked her,
      Did you move or anything when this happened?
      Why yes,
      We moved out of a moldy home and into a new one.
      Mold causes many many problems throughout our entire body.

  3. For a 10 minute video Marie did a fantastic job of covering a lot of aspects of this issue people need to know. I’m so impressed she was able to participate in this interview! She is Somebody!

  4. So powerful. When my son was around 5, that’s when he’d say things like “I wish I’d just die.” It was heart wrenching to hear this from such a small child. His Neuroquant shows extensive damage due to mold.
    My prayers are with you always Kelli! Jared will never be forgotten.

    1. I am so so so sorry. I worry about my children, who are 4 and 6 months. ???? My heart and prayers are with you and your children. ????

  5. Great interview. Good questions and great answers. I am so impressed that Marie is so well informed. It makes an impact when a “regular person” shows compassion and understanding for an illness that they don’t suffer from. Amazing she is so willing to try to help. Sending hugs to you Kelli and your family. We’re grateful for your inspiration and unwavering commitment to make a change in honor of Jared. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thank you guys. I love you all. No greater love have I felt ever in my life.. We are truly in this together.. Right now I am focusing on healing my spirit, body, and mind. So glad progress is being made, it helps me heal…

  7. Year ago today. Still can’t believe it. I had just met you guys…few days later…Jared was gone.

    I’ll never forget your email that night…your phone call. I knew it…before I knew it.

    I and 1000s of others, will be thinking of you today.

    Love you

  8. Kelli, I will never forget this day as well. The message you sent me telling me what happened. You said,”Jared heard what your son had done..he saved a man’s life. Jared said he wanted to do that. He wanted to BE SOMEBODY. He wanted to save others…he wanted them to listen.”
    Well, I can attest to the fact that your Jared has saved thousands with his story. YOU have been the conduit through which his message has reached people everywhere. When we have been at our lowest, your messages on FB have reminded us WE ARE NOT ALONE. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER. Through your darkest days,you have managed to selflessly lift us up. You and Jared are the real heroes, Kelli. Jared’s journey made you fight harder and because of him, we are all still standing. We love you. We thank you with all of our hearts.

  9. Dearest Kelli,

    As a mom, to say today is just a day of remembrance is far from reality. Others may remember yearly, monthly or otherwise but a mother holds tight every moment she is awake. Just know that Jerod is with a God who loves him unconditionally. Time to God is but a moment so in this perspective, hold tight…you’ll see Jared real soon and I know this gives you comfort. Your journey is important too so don’t forget that. You are loved thought about often as well.


    1. I have avoided the pain.. Part of how I carry on. But you all remind me of just what I am meant to do moving forward, and I do believe that God has a plan in all of this… I am committed, just needed some time to hear God’s voice in all of this.. I guess I needed to be quiet, to hear his voice..

  10. Could you please post the name of the Dr in Ontario who tests and treats patients with mold toxicity/illness.
