Heidi’s Story | ACCESS

accesshelp.org [cached]

Heidi Snow's world was forever changed on July 17, 1996 when her fiancé Michel Breistroff died aboard TWA Flight 800.

...
Heidi discovered, however, as many do following a sudden loss, that she did not need to move away from the grief, but through it. She realized that what was missing was a long-term, non-political, non-denominational, peer grief support network for those touched by air disasters. She wanted everyone to have the opportunity to find support, and more importantly, hope for the future. So shortly after Michel's death, in the fall of 1996, Heidi founded the non-profit organization AirCraft Casualty Emotional Support Services (ACCESS)

ACCESS: History

But Heidi never got that chance.

...
Heidi and thousands of loved ones of those lost were left in unspeakable grief and torment; their lives forever changed.
In the immediate aftermath, the American Red Cross, the airlines, and other organizations provided crisis intervention to families and friends of the victims. However the help was only temporary, and after a few weeks, the disaster teams disbanded. When the initial shock subsided, the agonizing process of grieving intensified and Heidi needed a place to turn. She and the others, now scattered around the world, felt abandoned and isolated with no organization to connect them. Like others affected by air crashes, Heidi found it hard to cope with what had happened.
...
Heidi was inspired by this first gleam of hope and immediately began working to set up an organization to connect the loved ones of air disaster victims to those who had survived similar losses years earlier. She vowed that no one would have to suffer the pain and loneliness she had experienced without of the support of others who understood. With the help of many, including the wonderful volunteers from the Pan Am 103 meeting, Heidi founded AIRCRAFT CASUALTY EMOTIONAL SUPPORT SERVICES (ACCESS) in the Fall of 1996.
...
Heidi raised the necessary resources through grants, capital campaigns, and fundraising events to enable ACCESS to grow.
