We Stand Together, Inc. Scholarship
We Stand Together, Inc. recognizes that a child who has a parent who’s been diagnosed with cancer is a major transition for that individual and their family. In an effort to support families and students who are going through this life-changing process, We Stand Together, Inc. has established the Natalie Marc Surpris Scholarship Fund, which is named after the late Founder and former President of We Stand Together, Inc. Scholarship recipients will be awarded with a scholarship in the amount of $1000.
The scholarship is eligible for High School seniors who are current residents of Florida, or college undergraduate students who are currently enrolled at a Florida college or university that has a parent who is battling cancer or has passed away due to cancer.
Our Founder & CEO
My impetus for founding Julia’s Kids Incorporated in 2015 was the sudden death of my friend Julia Bennett. I lost a dear friend, but my heart broke for her three children who were left behind. While mentoring to them, I witnessed hopelessness and depression. We sought professional help from a therapist. This experience exposed me to the transformational power of grief counseling and sadly, how many children in our community desperately need access to it.

What People Are Saying
“In times like these when life is unpredictable, it’s necessary to have these things in order.”
“This is certainly a service i would need. I think our family should be aware of how we would like our children to be raised.”
“Youth Summit was amazing, I was perfect I learned a lot.”
“Hi, Yolanda. Just wanted to take the time to say thanks again. Lisa enjoyed herself on Friday with her group. And she is doing well with her one on one sessions. The office is literally 5 minutes away from our home. Everything is falling into place for her. We definitely see a difference in the pay two weeks. Thank God. I know this process is like baby steps. But I just wanted to thank you for your help. Seeing her somewhat better helps my family also cope with our sadness. Thanks again and God bless!!”

My organization @esstherapyteam have been working alongside @juliaskids for 3 years. This organization services children who have experienced a loss of a parent or guardian by death, incarceration, or permanent separation; by providing grief counseling among other amazing programs. I never imagined my own son would have fallen into this category at such a young age...but here we are. Thank you to the CEO of Julia's Kids for seeing the need our children have after a loss. #ParentingWhileNoire #WidowedAndYoung #Grief #Mourning
