Griese, a former Denver Broncos quarterback (post-Elway) lost his mother Judi to breast cancer when he was 12 years old and admits to having a hard time coping. He is now using his celebrity to help kids and caregivers find strength in terrible times of grief.
Griese offers Colorado Parent readers tips on how parents can help their children cope with grief. He is also promoting a formal charity ball, Cora Belts Royal Ball, on October 17, which of course goes to support his great work at Judi's House.
