Life Brings you to where you are meant to be......and today I am meant to be a voice, an advocate, an ambassador in raising awareness and ultimately to help shatter the negative stigma of addiction. I know.. because the disease of addiction knocked at my door, and try to steal my most precious gift in the world, my son. I know the fear, the pain, the devastation and running in the darkness trying to find answers. I made a promise to myself, that if we could rise above this, that my lifes mission would be to help others on this journey, become an advocate for change in legislation, but moreso be the voice for those we have lost to this disease and the light for those searching for support.
Today, I am running.. but not away, I am running the New York City Marathon with #teamshatterproof. I don't need your legs, I don't need your sneakers, but I need any amount you can donate, so every mile has meaning. I am forever grateful for every dollar donated.
