Dad walks 525 miles in memory of son’s suicide
On April 21, Denis Asselin, 63, left his home to embark on a 525-mile walk from Philadelphia to Boston to honor the memory of his son Nathaniel, who took his life last year after a 13-year battle with body dysmorphic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. Nathaniel was 24.
Mr Asselin's primary goals are to tell Nathaniel's story -- so that awareness about brain disorders, especially OCD and BDD, can spread far and wide.
