46 people die everyday related to opioid and prescription painkillers. The statistics are so high, that most people know someone close to them that has been effected by this epidemic.
I want to create this memorial to keep the memory of those lost too soon, out there. I want to show the vast proportion of people effected by this horrible epidemic, and that it’s not just the users but everyone close to them as well.
If you have a loved one you would like to include on this page go to my contact page or send me an email. Include their name, a little about them, their story, a picture, along with your name.
