Payton Rose died by suicide on February 10, 2016, at the age of 17. Her life was cut short by the effects of bullying, exacerbated by traumatic brain injury. She loved life, but in the end, the bullying was too much for her heart to handle. Payton’s Project was formed to make sure that no one else is made to feel the way that Payton did. Through Payton's Project we seek to: Educate, Spread Love, Build Community.
