Recognize a JPHiP Legend: ChrNo
C'est ChrNo aka Jennifer Tam - the girl from France. IT'S A TRAP! Berryz fan and Buono supporter, she drew many drawings of Miyabi and populated the JPH!P Forums with her witty puns and illustrations. She was the President of The Tama-chan fanclub, and we'd all follow her lead in creeping tama out. ChrNo would never hesitate to contributing artistically to JPH!P, in drawings, song and dance. She designed many banners and our mascot, the little ass guy back in 2007:
When the task was to record a JPH!P Version of Morning Musume's "Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari" for JPH!P's 5th Anniversary, ChrNo stepped up to the plate and wrote, sang, and arranged several verses for HiPstaz
On April 26, 2011, we were stunned to learn the news that she had left us, just a day after Berryz held their first appearance and concert overseas. We will continue her legacy, representing the Berryz and H!P fandom in a positive manner through humour. "Za Story of Noisy HiPstaz" is officially adopted as The JPH!P National Anthem as we keep singing and dancing for you ChrNo <3
Just seems like yesterday don't it. Four years ago today on April 26, DAT Homegirl ChrNo passed away. With The Berryz Fangirling, With The emoticons creation, With The Berry Punny Posts, With The Fanfics Reppin, With The STRAIGHT REALEST Definition of Being An Awesome HiPster. ChrNo's loss continues to leave us with a huge hole in our heart, as we carry on her legacy in everything we do. We are so proud to have her as a member of The FAM and Friend to all.
We knew she had issues, and that she spent times in the hospital. What hurts the most, is that we were so helpless to help her. For a community of 10 years, losing four equally amazing HiPstaz in marimari, Jabronisaur, ChrNo and Fushigidane - seems shocking. But we a tight knit group and these get magnified. Without these HiPstaz and HiPstaz like YOU, we are not where we are today.
That is why I plead to you - do not hold back, speak out on your experiences with Mental Health issues and it will help others deal: http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=35514.0
Looking back though, being there for her - giving her an outlet to channel her creative energy was the best we could do. To be bestowed upon her beautiful artwork and funny posts, her enthusiastic singing and drawing the iconic - we are truly blessed.

To learn of the news that afternoon that she had committed suicide, after we repped her artwork for all of Berryz to see in Seattle is something I will never forget. Her long battle with mental illness had come to an end, she had found peace.

On April 26, 2011 - one year ago today we lost a great HiPster in ChrNo to suicide. The French girl whose puns, illustrations, song and positive attitude made JPH!P a fun place to be in, the void still stings but we shall take the pain into a lifelong tribute.
There was one most obvious way we could think of...
CALLING ALL JPHiP ARTISTS!
Let us design shirts based on the JPHiP emoticon mascot guy envisioned by ChrNo. For example, I took the smiley version and mosaic'd it like so:
and created this shirt:
with a ChrNo <3 text on the back. GET it at http://shop.jphip.com
- Only elements which are part of the final design should be included: All elements which should not appear in the design, such as backgrounds, should first be removed before submission.

All proceeds ($3.10 per shirt) will go to Mental Health Awareness charities based in France and worldwide: http://www.who.int/mental_health/en/
We won't skirt the issues. We accept people of all types of backgrounds and are treated the same way. Many of us still can't grasp nor understand how we lost ChrNo so let us bring forth awareness of Mental Health issues, as it remains relatively hidden from mainstream recognition and there is a lingering stigma that continues to pervade attitudes toward mental health.
We look to raise money in support of mental health as well as open up discussion about Mental Health.
She is at peace now, watching over us. Always remember you, mon amie.
