Moo has been featured in newspaper and magazine articles and has presented routinely to both middle schoolers in a diversion program and adults in a rehab facility struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. She was featured on ABC Phoenix news in January 2018 when Governor Ducey signed legislation regulating the number of opioids doctors are allowed to prescribe. She has presented at both a library and a Barnes & Noble. For more information, see her website

Book one features a little boy who sees his mom only on Saturdays and struggles with feeling “different” because he doesn’t live with either parent while book two features a child whose parent is incarcerated relative to illegal drug usage. A neighborhood pet that witnesses the family ramifications of adult drug usage shares his wisdom about addiction in book three. Each book features themes and pictures significant to Tyler’s life, family, and his artistic passion and talent.
The funds raised will be used to publish these three hardback books and pay for illustrations. All proceeds raised through this fundraising campaign will be used ONLY to support the continued efforts of this life-saving and critical outreach program which is to prevent addiction and overdoses. Moo's ultimate goal is to save lives and prevent further family loss and despair.
Why is MOO doing a fundraiser?
MOO is raising money via GoFundMe for the sole purpose of publishing 3 children’s books about addiction (which includes paying for the illustrations). MOO is not keeping any of the money; this is strictly a publishing financial endeavor.
To this date, since Moo began writing her first book in February 2015, she has earned less than $50. Vicky and Ron have subsidized all costs for the publication of Release Me, the establishment and maintenance of her website, www.moo-mothersopposingopioids.com, professional photographs of Moo and of all of Tyler’s artwork, business cards, etc… The business simply cannot continue without additional and outside revenue.
Remember that if you choose to donate, you are not donating to Moo/Vicky. You are donating to the education of children, the prevention of additional overdoses and deaths, and essentially to the good of the world.
p.s. Please post this GoFundMe on your Facebook wall or send this link to others via email, as you never know who might have a connection to someone with an addiction.
