Chris Atwood was my brother. An irreplaceable piece of my heart that was stolen by heroin when he was just 21 years old. When I came home and found him unresponsive in his bed I found out what it was like to need naloxone and not have it.
Naloxone is a medication that reverses overdose. I will never know if it could have saved him that day, but I do know that I don't want anyone else to live with these horrible memories and questions - to live without their loved one when it could have easily been prevented. Please help me stop that from happening to other sisters, fathers, wives, and friends by making a donation today. Just $38 is enough to provided a dose of HOPE for a family or individual battlign this disease.
When others in the world tell people with addiction they deserve what they get, we know that NO ONE would choose to be hijacked by this evil substance. No one would choose to lose their homes, jobs, families, dignity, and finally their lives. This is a disease, and it's a difficult one to beat, but with time people do get better. We just have to give them that chance.
Donate today to give the gift of life.
