(WXYZ) — Crime can enter our lives at any time, no matter who you are or where you live. And when violence invades, it leaves behind a vicious path of destruction for so many people like those who are left behind to grieve.

They are victims too. But most importantly they are survivors.

This is National Gun Violence Survivors' Week.

Our Andrea Isom takes us on one woman’s journey to help heal her pain and others.

Please take a look at this list below. There are so many organizations in Detroit that can offer you the support you may be seeking. And connecting to those resources is essential. Pain and healing is a process of pain and you don’t have to do it alone.
