Pembroke Pines Resident Cathy Balenovic to Lead Effort

Pembroke Pines, FL - Cathy Balenovic remembers that tragic day in August of 2012 as if it were yesterday.

“Our lives were indelibly changed when we suddenly lost our son, Luka,” said Balenovic. “He was only 25-years-old with his entire life ahead of him.”

What was incredibly impactful to Balenovic during that time period was how Luka’s death affected her youngest son, Tomi.

“He was just starting his freshman year and it really was a tough time,” she said. “Although there was a social worker on staff at his high school, there wasn’t a bereavement support group for students who have experienced traumatic loss.”

Duvall said her experience with hospice care brought peace to her family during an extremely difficult time.

West Palm Beach, FL - For Alicia Braaf, April 29, 2013, is a day that will be forever seared into her mind. The young mother of two had sent her husband, David, on a dinner mission to pick up pizza for the family on a quiet Monday evening. He never returned, only to be found in a car in the parking lot of a nearby shopping plaza, the victim of multiple gunshot wounds.

“I said no, this can’t be it,” said Braaf. Frantic, she arrived at the crime scene, only to have to identify her husband as the victim of a violent crime, and have her family’s entire world turned upside down.
