Our vision is to create a non-profit organization that will help educate students about the dangers of addiction and to help give them healthy pathways out. We want to help educate their friends and family on how to support them so that no one else has to experience the pain that addiction brings. All of the proceeds raised will help the Lee family establish a non-profit organization that will work towards educating students, families, teachers, and school administrators on a local, state, and national scale.

I lost my older brother January 23rd, 2014 to alcohol addiction. He struggled with addiction since high school. In treatment several times and would do good for awhile. Then something would trigger and he would go on a drinking binge that would last anywhere from 2 days to a few weeks. The last time I saw my 56 year old brother was Christmas day 2013. We had spent a wonderful day with our parents family. I told him I loved him, I would see him later and to stay out of trouble (same thing I said every time l saw him). He left my parents house Dec 28th to run some errands. He was found January 23rd in his car in a parking lot.

I do not this young man, but my heart breaks for his family and friends . Such a heartbreaking story. I am a addict myself however i have almost 5 years clean thanks to the mmt program. I myself have lost many friends because of addiction. I wish there was more help out there and better programs . I am a mother of 4 and cant donate any money however I will keep his family in my prayers. No body should have to go through this. My heart aches for this family but jm happy they are starting a foundation to help educatate other about drug use. if theres anything i can do to help please contact me.

There are not enough decent inpatient treatment programs for teens. The outpatient treatment center here in Everett is a joke. Those suffering from Addiction are afraid to ask for help because of the stigmatisms attached to the drug. I know, I am an alcoholic /addict. I am also a daughter, mother, and grandmother. I am still me. I haven't changed inside. I am not the disease. I am a loving human being fighting to be "dis-ease" free, one day, one hour, one minute at a time if I have to. I still have a loving, kind heart . Don't throw me away or forget who I was before addiction took over. "Love covers all sin". "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" I can be Whole again if I allow God in my life. "I am a new creature, old things have past away, behold the new (you). Infinitely there are new beginings for us. We can begin again whenever we choose.
