If you are interested in hearing Ryan's story, the effects of addiction on the family and how I continue to cope with the loss of our son from overdose, please use the contact us link at the bottom of the page. Please include location, dates and contact information. I want to tell Ryan's story and I hope to help those suffering from substance abuse disorder, the families who are supporting them and the families who have lost a loved one to drugs.

  My inaugural speech went better than expected.  Telling Ryan's story is very healing for me and I have a message that needs to be shared with everyone! 


Mitch Reed, Superintendant and Motivational Speaker

Our staff was moved by her story, her passion, and her strength to endure the pain.

Joe, Recovering Addict

Ryan played a huge role in me beating a heroin and opioid addiction that lasted over 10 years! That day at the benefit for Ryan . you really got to me.  I hope you know you played a big part as well!
