How did the TWLOHA form?

Jamie Tworkowski did not set out to start an organization. He just wanted to help Renee to tell her story. When they met, Renee was struggling with addiction, depression, self-injury and suicidal thoughts. He wrote about the five days he spent with her before she entered a treatment center.

 When they met…

When they met Renne was 19. Her body was still under the influence of cocaine. After that day, Renee went to rehab  because of addiction and others.But the Rehab Center had no detox, so they thought she could affect others badly because of cutting her wrists. After five days the rehab center accepted her. When they went to rehab, Renee turned to them and said “The stars are always there but we miss them in the dirt and clouds. We miss them in the storms. Tell them to remember hope. We have hope.”
