“My sister, Holly, struggled with addiction almost half of her life. After being hit by a car in her early twenties she got hooked on pain pills. Years of being over-prescribed turned to heroin use. In 2016 she spent 3 months in the hospital after her organs were destroyed from her heroin use. Heart valves replaced, physical rehab, temporary dialysis, lung problems, we thought this would be the final straw for her to make a change.”
-Krystal Webb

I stole this from the lovely Tyler Connolly 🤭❤️ I’m not ashamed of my mental health issues. I suffer greatly from depression and anxiety from my health conditions, which only exacerbate all the crap I’ve had to deal with in my life. There’s many times I’ve sat on the brink and thought the world would be better off without me, and that I couldn’t take any more. And when my boyfriend of four years dumped me when I was extremely ill, it honestly took everything to bring myself back. I’m still fighting so many battles. But we are stronger than we know and like a phoenix we will rise again from the ashes :) My inbox is always open to anyone needed someone to talk to. You’re not alone. #mentalhealthawareness #weareshatterproof

Like I said before... If God gave you 2 legs🚶. 2 lungs🌬. And a heart❤. USE THEM!
I'll be participating in another 5k on June 3rd.

If this 5k fundraiser speaks to you in anyway, if you know someone that's battled addiction, if you yourself have battled addicition, or see the damage addiction does to the people living it and their families.. then consider supporting the cause. 🙏🏽
We're alive. ✊
We're The Lucky Ones.

"Losing Cameron to this disease has always been my greatest fear. My heart breaks for all who live this and know there are many who undoubtedly struggle to mourn such a loss. Although it does not feel that way, know you are not alone, we will stand together to fight for health and sobriety for our families, friends, and neighbors. As a community we all need to do our part to stop this epidemic that is claiming so many young lives."
-Alexandra Herr, Cameron's mom
