Dealing with Loss at the Gym

Heart of Cheer published Dealing with Loss at the Gym, due to the recent losses in our industry.

It was heartbreaking to hear of the recent losses in the cheer community this week and it prompted me to write this piece in hopes of helping those who are directly affected by these lives taken too soon. This isn’t the easiest article for me to write, being both a mother who has lost two children of her own and a former coach who has lost an athlete, but I hope my past experiences will bring some comfort and help to those struggling to cope right now and also provide a resource for those who have experienced this in the past, or may experience it in the future.
