Meghan previously opened up about Doria, who left her job at a mental health clinic in the Los Angeles area last year.

Speaking to Glamour in 2017, she said: My mom’s a yoga instructor, but she does social work, as well, and she works specifically with the geriatric community,’ she wrote.

‘For me to watch this level of life-long sensitivity to nurturing and caregiving, but at the same time my mom has always been a free spirit. She’s got dread locks and a nose ring. She just ran the LA Marathon.

‘We can just have so much fun together, and yet, I’ll still find so much solace in her support,’ she added. ‘That duality coexists the same way it would in a best friend.’

The run raises money to fund and raise awareness of the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center, which describes itself as the first in the nation. 

It also trains public services including firefighters and and the FBI in how to respond to warning signs.

Their site describes the charity as: ‘A national and world leader in training, research and services for people who have thought about, attempted or lost someone to suicide.’
