We are The 2nd Chances Couple! As a young widowed couple ourselves, we created 2nd Chances when we realized that other young widows and widowers wanted a place to communicate and build relationships with others who share a similar journey. Too often, young people who have lost a spouse feel alone, isolated, and out of place in the world. Even though there are millions of young wids across the globe, it's common to feel like you're the only one, when no one in your immediate circle has lost their partner at an early stage in life. We were both in our young 40s, Michael lost his wife after a long illness and Helene lost her husband unexpectedly. After some time on our own we knew we wanted to connect with others who could understand our experiences. When we met online, communicating with one another felt like life was beginning again. We developed a special relationship that felt like we were coming home. We decided that we wanted to share our lives and also build something for wids just like us. We learned that when young widowed people decide to open up to the possibility of connect to each other, they often wish they could meet someone who shares the unique life experience that happens when you lose your spouse. 2nd Chances is the first and only app of its kind, specifically designed to connect widows and widowers aged 55 and under. It is ONLY for us! The mission of 2nd Chances is to build hope by bringing together young widows and widowers, one connection at time
