"If she can empower one other woman who feels like they can't get out of bed, or get through the day, whatever the loss, it'll be worthwhile sharing her story," said the event's host, Maria Shriver.

Joining Preston for the "Grief & Resilience" panel will be Elizabeth Edwards and actress Susan St. James.
