Breaking the Silence and Erasing the Stigma



Since our son’s death in 2014 to an accidental heroin overdose, it has been our mission to share with the community our story in order to educate and spread awareness about the dangers of opiates.  We want to empower others with the knowledge that we have gained throughout this journey for the purpose of prevention and early intervention. We accomplish this by sponsoring “stop heroin” walks, setting up an informational table at events and speaking at events.


Our vision is to witness the end of the Heroin epidemic by breaking the silence and erasing the stigma of addiction.
