Struggling for years with substance abuse. Experiencing the horrendous cycle that surrounds the word "addict or addiction". I fought hard to turn my life around. I now go to school full time trying to reach one of the goals that had turned to dust. Fighting every day to stay in recovery, helping as many people as I can along the way. I have a blog that brings you into the world I once lived and the one I know currently face. Addressing the many questions that are asked about "addicts" the what, why, when, how, etc. The life of the reality. This money will be donated to the non-profit organization Chicago Area Opioid Task Force, as they work on a new app that will help so many people struggling. It will help anyone affected or impacted by the horrible disease of substance abuse disorder. I truly know this invented app will help SO many people!! Any additional funds will continue to go to CAOTF as they continue to collaborate with their 6 sub-committees promoting change and most of all education and awareness. Every little bit helps someone looking for guidance to the light that will forever change their lives. "Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life" I want all who are struggling to be able to say those words, happy and healthy.
