Communities that Care: Foundation creates awareness for suicide prevention

Humanitarian and tennis star Arthur Ashe once said that to make a difference, “Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.” Six months after my sister, Jana Marie Vicere, committed suicide, I realized the importance of this message. I had the opportunity to help the State College community by sharing Jana’s story and implementing programs to assist teens and their families. In February 2012, I launched the Jana Marie Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
