TRANSFORMING TRAGEDY

INTO HOPE

INVITE CATHY TO SHARE HER STORY WITH YOU

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” –Plato

On August 23rd, 2015, Cathy Costello’s life changed forever. Her oldest son, who for many years has battled with severe mental illness, had quit taking his medication. Meeting on a quiet summer evening with his parents at a local restaurant in Oklahoma City, Christian Costello experienced a delusional, psychotic break and inexplicably stabbed his father, Labor Commissioner Mark Costello to death. Mark died in Cathy’s arms.
