The goal of the Larisa Karassik Foundation is to continue Larisa’s legacy by assisting other families who have lost a child under similar tragic circumstances, by:
Reminding others that their choices and actions have consequences, not just for themselves, but for others as well. Choosing to abuse alcohol, prescription drugs and other illegal substances have consequences, choosing to get behind the wheel of a car and drive could end the life of another and forever change the lives of that person’s family and friends.
Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?”
