Ben was a kind, reflective, genuine, compassionate, loving and generous person. He was a spiritual person and he believed that God had a plan for him. He ferverently hoped he could use his suffering and life lessons to help others who are struggling.
His hope was to someday become a substance abuse counselor and make an impact on the lives of so many dealing with this horrific disease. The lack of resources and awareness are too often road blocks to those seeking recovery. This fund has been established by his family to promote Ben's deep desire to provide help and support for those working on recovery from addiciton.
Your contributions will be used to provide funding for those seeking treatment in nonprofit organizations and to promote education regarding addiction. Ben's family will be responsible for the disbursement and managemnt of the Ben Merritt Memorial Fund.
