Help For Families Facing Addiction

On Friday, July 15, 2016, my only son Brian was tragically taken away from me by a deadly combination of heroin and Fentanyl. He suffered from severe anxiety and was given this deadly mixture, which he was told would help him. His anxiety finally stopped forever, as did his heart. He died instantly and never saw it coming.

Brian was a wonderful, handsome, loving son who had big dreams just like every child. Unfortunately his life was taken away in a split second. I call this murder, and it is happening EVERY DAY. You never in a minute would think this can happen to you and then in one split second your life changes FOREVER.

In memory of my son, I’ve taken on a quest to put the Brian and Brianna Anti-Addiction bears and Comfort bears in the hands of people everywhere:

A good portion of the money generated from every sale will be put aside into a separate fund, which will be used to provide addicts the opportunity to enter sober living homes. Some of the money will be used to produce more bears and cover expenses to keep this movement alive.

I am now partnering with excellent rehabilitation facilities and sober living homes which have agreed to step forward to seek sponsorship and to sign on to work with me so that, together, we can make this happen.

Let’s all join together and help these poor victims that are suffering from this horrible disease.. If I could just save one life, I will know that I am on the right path in what I am supposed to be doing.

The 15″ Ready Set Go Comfort Bears provide a message of love and deliver this positive message on a T-shirt that reads:

“When you feel that you can’t bear the pain, hug this bear and say my name.”

Each bear will wear a heart pendant where you can put a picture of your loved one.

They will deliver the positive message to Get Ready to carry on, Set a goal, and Go out there and honor your loved one.

The 15″ Ready Set Go Anti-Addiction bears provide a message of hope and encouragement and deliver this message with a superhero bear wearing a purple cape and mask wearing a button that reads “I will fight this battle and win!”

Each bear will provide positive affirmation by encouraging the person to:

Get ready to overcome their fears, set their goals high, and go out there and be the best they can be.

A very informative guide is included which will provide helpful tips on how to build positive self-esteem while in recovery.

Any donation — no matter how small — will help support this cause.

Thank you for all your support.  We need to join together and stop these lives from being cut short.

No mother or father should ever have to bury their child.
