ROCHESTER, Minn. - Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult for anyone. But it can be even more difficult for kids.

November 16th is Children's Grief Awareness Day. In recognition of the day, Mayo Clinic lit the Plummer Building blue in an effort to spread awareness about the issue.

"We do this with the hopes of communicating both the hope to them and the message that you are supported as you grieve, that everywhere you turn there would be adults in your community that are willing to help," said Zach Lovig, the Staff Chaplain of the Pediatrics Department at Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic offers many resources for children who are dealing with grief, including dog therapy and the Healing Adventures Camp.
