THE STORY:

On February 7th, 2014, I lost my cousin and best friend. He suffered a long battle with heroin addiction and recovered after a lengthy battle with endocarditis. While it was not heroin that caused his untimely passing, but his failing heart, the suffering and lifestyle that he struggled with while fighting his battle is what made our cause a reality. As a nurse, and personal confident, I learned so much from our conversations, and he opened doors into his personal dwellings on his struggle and enlightened me on so much more than I could ever learn in any educational program. His motto was B-Real and he was known by that name by many in the community. Since his passing, we have seen so much on television on the crisis of heroin and addiction and creating an organization to help others prevent the lifestyle that ultimately broke the hearts of our family. We want to rise above this epidemic by helping other children get treatment before it is too late. Most insurance companies do not cover intensive treatment programs. We are designing this foundation to support the families who can not afford quality treatment, and hopefully save the lives innocent children, who unknowingly tangled themselves into a terrible web of addiction. With our funds we will be implementing educational programs within our community with hopes to eventually spread to being a nation wide charity. Even if we can help one child, our work will be worth it, but to save many, will be a dream come true to deliver hope to families who may not have that much.  Our goal is prevention and  to help with cost for recovery.  Please join us on our mission to prevent drug addiction and stomp out heroin/opiate abuse! #BReal
