GriefHaven Supports Brakes for Brett

When Brett Karlin, the beloved son of Michael and Marcie Karlin, died while "hill hopping" with his friend, Andy, his father decided it was time that other parents know about this hill hopping activity their teens may be participating in. Perhaps others would be spared the intense grief of loss they were having to endure. Plus, those teens who saw it as a fun-loving way to spend time needed to know the potential tragic consequences. So Michael, out of his love for Brett, started "Brakes for Brett." Andy, the driver, speaks regularly with Michael.

We met Michael when he called our foundation in need of love, support, and hope two weeks after Brett's death. The message that Michael has begun to spread through Brakes for Brett has reached into the homes of thousands across this nation, and we are proud to have joined hands with this tremendous organization.
