In Memory of Brendan

My one and only son, my baby, Brendan died on May 31, 2018 from a heroin overdose. I found him in his room on the floor leaning against his bed, unresponsive. In order to help stop this opioid epidemic and in hopes to save other mothers and families from experiencing this tremendous painful loss, I have directed my anger and loneliness towards raising money for Black Balloon Day. I miss him so much.
