Life & Style with Francyne – Tamika Cheree Henry, Founder – I Am Here

In honor of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I wanted to give my dear friend Tamika Cheree Henry, an opportunity to tell the story of losing her beautiful 21-year-old daughter to a domestic violence situation three years ago.  Jazmyne Gibson was Tamika’s only daughter who had a wide network of family and friends who loved her immensely.  She held so much promise as a young, enterprising student.  I spoke with Tamika about her unimaginable loss and how she’s turning that heartache into healing for others that have suffered like herself.

Tamika has planned a charity event in Jazzy’s honor to raise money for her newly formed non-profit organization, “I Am Here.”  For more information and to purchase tickets you can to eventbrite.com and search for “A Jazzy Affair.”
