For all of them, it has been the toughest year of their lives. Lavina Phillips, Denise Hatch-Anderson and Lahneen Fryberg have formed an unbreakable bond in the last 365 days as they work to find a way through tragedy.

“It’s a challenge, but with the bond that we have as mothers, we can support each other.”

Lavina Phillips is Shaylee Chuckulnaskit’s mom. Denise Hatch-Anderson is the mother to Nate Hatch and Lahneen Fryberg is Andrew Fryberg’s mom. Shaylee, Nate and Andrew were three of the five students who were shot last October 24 when Jaylen Fryberg opened fire in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School cafeteria. Shaylee and Andrew both died days after the shooting. Nate Hatch is the lone survivor.

As the one-year anniversary approached, the three mothers gathered for their first in-depth interview, discussing their children, the tragedy and how they’ve been able to move forward.
