Mary Fetchet Lost Her Son on 9/11

Mary Fetchet Lost Her Son on 9/11

New Canaan's Mary Fetchet lost her son Brad on September 11, 2001. He had called her husband right after the first tower was hit; he was on the 89th floor of tower 2. That was the last time they heard from their 24-year-old son.

Fetchet, a social worker by trade, though grieving, started mobilizing to help other families and founded a 9/11 advocacy non-profit organization called Voices of September 11th. She also launched the 9-11 Living Memorial Project so that the stories of those who perished could be told. More.
