On the morning of May 11, 2015, Erin Davis, one of Canada’s most beloved radio personalities, suffered a devastating blow
Erin was on set in Jamaica when she received the news that her twenty-four-year-old daughter, Lauren—who had marked a joyous Mother’s Day just hours before—had failed to awaken to her baby’s cries. Thus began Erin’s journey of grieving out loud with her family, friends and listeners, and of demonstrating how to pick up and keep going after experiencing the worst loss a parent can endure. Struck with grief and unable to find the answer to why Lauren had died, Erin and her husband, Rob, started down the long road through loss, determined not only to survive but also to reclaim the joy in their lives.
Inspiring and unflinching, Mourning Has Broken charts a way forward after life has dealt a crushing blow. It reminds us that we are not alone in grief, and that although life is unpredictable and unfair, we can survive and return to joy.
Originally from Edmonton, ERIN DAVIS is a radio broadcaster and was the popular, long-time co-host of 98.1 CHFI’s morning show in Toronto. After Lauren’s death, Erin decided to return to her radio work, staying on for eighteen months. At that point, she chose to retire from daily radio and moved with her husband, Rob Whitehead, to Victoria, BC. Erin appears regularly as a freelance voice artist emcee and a keynote speaker for many organizations and events in Canada and the US.
