Kathryn and Imogen
“I was in a fog of shock and grief. It was then that I entered Legacy House… their incredible support allowed me to grieve and be a parent.”
“I am Kathryn. I am a mother, an Army Officer, a war veteran and in 2017, I became a war widow.
Three years ago, my husband of 10 years became increasingly violent. Like myself, he had a long career as an Army Officer and had served three tours overseas. He had experienced a terrible and largely secret battle with chronic pain, depression, and PTSD.
In the days before he took his life, I managed to escape with our then two-year-old daughter Imogen.
Bereft, traumatised and battered, I entered Legacy House.
Legacy found me legal, financial, welfare and social support. They put me in touch with other widows and found activities for Imogen to join with other kids who had also lost their father.”
“They found me a beautiful Legacy family.”
Kathryn believes that she owes so much to Legacy for their unwavering support, in everything we do, we owe a debt of gratitude to generous friends like you.
