My youngest son Erik passed away at the age of 19 November 1,2017. As someone who struggled with anxiety and was an avid marijuana user he started dabbling with other illicit drugs. He was going down a road to addiction this accidental overdose left a huge hole in our family. His siblings still struggle, with addictions and mental health challenges as they navigate their grief.
As a nurse I turned my loss of my son to honouring him, and now work with Addiction/mental health Clinic and outreach. With a high homeless/indigenous population I am growing, learning and connecting with people where they are at. My son Erik is with me everyday leading my path. Trying to save lives and help as many as we can. 💜💜
