The story behind my brother...
My mom, dad, and I were interviewed by Deseret News last week concerning my brothers death. I love being able to spread the word about prescription drug abuse and the toll it takes on the family. I don't think people realize how big of a problem this is! It is so sad that this is one of the top killers in Utah, and this is something that can so easily be controlled.

Last week my family and I were invited to a wonderful luncheon for a new facility called N.O.R.F. (national opiates recovery foundation.) This is located in Murray and is a rehabilitation center for those addicted to opiates. My dad was a speaker and did an amazing job! Although the subject is very hard to discuss he loves nothing more than telling his story in hopes that others will have the opportunity to learn from it before it's too late. Please be opiate free! :)
