We are starting this gofundme to save the life of an immensely talented, loving, funny and kind hearted man. He is our baby brother, our parents only son, a partner to his beautiful girlfriend and an amazing friend to many. Most importantly he is a new Daddy to 2 beautiful little girls who love him so much and need him around to see them grow up.
Adam has always been a man with with immeasurable talents and potential to be very successful in life. He is a self taught musician, an artist (especially an outstanding tattoo artist), a chef, a builder and so much more. BUT he hasnt had an easy life. He has witnessed/experienced physical and verbal abuse and alcoholism within our family his whole life. Our Mom took great care of him and us (his 3 sisters) but, he struggled having no strong father figure/male bonds in his life. After losing his Dad to cancer when Adam was only 11 years old he began a lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression often leading to self harm, suicidal thinking and eventually alcohol/addiction to cope with his pain/fears. He has fought this battle for years! But NOW he is a Father himself. With his whole heart he wants nothing more than to be better for them, for his family and for himself! He is 100% committed to breaking the cycle of addiction to become the absolute best father he can be. He knows, without a doubt, that if he doesnt get help he will lose all/everyone he loves. We know that without help...he will die. Addiction is a family battle. He is tired. We are all tired from the fight. BUT he is not giving up. Recently his amazing friends pulled some strings and got him into one of the BEST rehab facilities in the country! One friend even paid for his flight to get him there ASAP. This truly shows our faith in him. It is an intensive program that will treat him body, mind and soul and he is ready!! His only focus right now should be on getting better. We dont want him worrying about how he will pay to save his life. The program costs $20,0000 and that is where we need your help. Everyone knows someone who's life has been affected by addiction or mental health issues. So please find it in your heart to help my brother beat this. We know he can do it! He's always had it in him. He just needed the right place to heal. He is there now. As I type this he has been in treatment for a week and he tells us he is so happy there and giving it everything hes got. He wants to help others going through the same problems once he is well. His spirits are high. He knows this is the start of a whole new life. The price to give him his life back, To bring his smile back, To ensure his girls always have their Daddy and our Mom wont have to bury her son is $20,000. Will you please help? Every little bit counts. If you cant contribute monetarily then please help by sharing this campaign and by saying a prayer.
Updates will be posted regularly and all money raised goes 100% to the treatment centre. Proof of payment/receipt will be shared. If, God willing, we reach our goal and go beyond any additional money will go to followup/aftercare treatment when Adam comes home to help him maintain his sobriety. Thank you in advance to all who support him in any way through this. We are so grateful.
