“I have finally come full circle, dealing with my brother’s tragic overdose. That overdose collapsed our family, and that collapse contributed to more divorces and more trauma. Now I’m on a path of more healing and more happiness. I’m not going to let my brother’s passing be in vain. I want to see the healing of communities, illnesses, and of course family. That’s why I’m here.”
