John Schneider remembers the tragedy in his life

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

John Schneider’s heart goes out to his Children’s Miracle Network cofounder Marie Osmond on the loss of her son – perhaps even more than she’s been aware. He has a heartbreak of his own.

Although their contact has been limited to emails in the wake of the suicide of her 18-year-old son, Michael Blosil, in late February, Schneider says he did bump into her ex-husband, Bryan Blosil, Michael’s father.

“Being a dad myself, my first thought was ‘Oh, my God. How is he taking it?’ Not just the loss of a child, but a loss in that way – such a tragic, tragic thing.

“This seems to be happening so much these days. How many kids, teenaged people, have we lost through suicides in the last 356 days – in the spotlight and not in the spotlight? Obviously it tells us how much kids are going through now,” notes Schneider, whose CMN has reportedly provided more than $3.2 billion in funding for children’s hospitals, medical research and community awareness of children’s health issues since its inception in 1983.
