My cousin had an amazing spirit. Even with his mental illness, every now and then you would get a glimpse of who he was before the illness took over.
My uncle did his best to navigate a complicated health system to provide for him. Even putting himself at risk to provide for his son.
In the end my cousin lived with my uncle and an unfortunate event took my cousins life. Leon Portis is a good man and the memory surrounding his son's death will be prison enough.
We want to provide legal support to my uncle and ensure he is able to spend his remaining years with his best friend, my father.
Mental illness is real and affects not only those diagnosed but their loved ones as well.
