I have been an artist, I was a non-profit medical volunteer for 10 yrs., until I was needed to turn my attentions to extended family needs for over 5 yrs.! I have 2 grown children.

I lost my mother at age 83, after a lengthy illness, in Feb., 2018!

I am calling on anyone who has lost a loved or knows someone who has lost a loved one due to substance abuse disease. I lost my son 12 years ago due to a fentanyl laced bag of heroin. It took eight years for me to realize I didn't want his death to be just a footnote and a statistic. I made Part 1 of a short documentary about my son which was which was shown in October of 2017.
