By the time Avril discovered the Y in 2011, her proverbial plate was overflowing. Not only was she responsible for the care of her aging mother, she was also the sole provider for her daughter (who suffers from mental illness) and her 6 year old granddaughter, Whitney. The situation was something of a pressure cooker with so many people and so many demands in such a small space. A competent woman, Avril struggled with the unavoidable truth: she needed some help and an outlet for Whitney’s youthful energy.
