Remembering Miah Bundukamara

May 1, 2000 – December 14, 2021

“Your beauty is rare and cherishable. I wonder how you see yourself through your eyes. I wonder if you feel trapped, lost and confused. I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, your mom and dad’s eyes, everyone you mean so much to. You deserve to see how wonderful you are and how much we love you. Do you know how much we really love you?”

On December 14, 2021, Cristi Bundukamara, owner of Mentally STRONG, experienced a terrible family tragedy. Her sweet 21-year-old daughter Miah passed away in her sleep. Because of Cristi’s unfailing commitment to channeling her own pain to create programs and services to help other people walk through their own grief, she is sharing her raw, unedited, grieving journey with you. Dr. B’s greatest hope is that you will gain some insight, understanding and compassion for yourself or anyone in your life that has or will experience the excruciating feeling of losing someone you love. Thank you to Cristi for giving this generous, unfiltered gift of herself to us. May it help each and every one of you on your journey of self-discovery.

Happy Birthday, Miah!
