Haley Jardas is pretty amazing…
When 12 Marines went missing off the coast of Hawaii last January, Haely Jardas’ brother Thomas Jardas, was one of them.
On Haely’s Facebook page, she wrote,
“My little brother was lost doing what he loved. He has always been and will always be my most important person. I hear his voice everywhere, and smile every time someone tells me how damn funny he was. I will never forget that laughter and I will share it for as long as I breathe”
I can’t begin to imagine the difficulty Haely and her family have been through… In fact, nobody would fault her if she wasn’t able to do anything else on behalf of Miss DC for the rest of the year. But Haely didn’t pack it in. Instead, she kept going.
In fact Haely’s family rallied, and while I can’t imagine the pain they all still feel, Haely has continued to sing and perform at events, as well as promote her platform, Mental Health Matters.
Haely’s platform is super meaningful to her, as she struggled with an anxiety disorder in college. Her goal, is to erase the stigma around mental health issues and making people aware of the services available to them, if they find themselves in a situation where they’re battling mental health.
Junkies wish Haely and the whole Jardas family all the best as you continue to move forward and serve others through your own difficult loss. “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”
And now, who do Junkies think will be named Miss DC 2016?
