The Mary Mac Show | Death By Fentanyl Podcast Series | April Babcock’s 25 yo son Austen

In Episode 196, I speak with April Babcock, who founded Lost Voices of Fentanyl after the death of her son, Austen at age 25. We speak candidly about how our government is failing us and how this illegal, illicit, counterfeit drug should be considered a weapon of mass destruction.

One of her goals is to make families aware that this drug is killing over 300 of our youngest people each day! Over 110,000 have been killed in 2022 and the numbers are growing exponentially.

Yet many of our government officials don’t believe this is an issue so families do all they can to make sure these authorities are aware and educated to these crimes.

Just a few of the over 300 killed each day to fentanyl poisoning.

Their 3rd annual rally will be on Saturday, September 23rd on the lawn in front of the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. Please attend whether you are a bereaved parent or someone who supports these families.

Details about the Rally and all its speakers are here on LVOF facebook page/event invite. It starts at 10am – 3pm and then a march to the White House follows.

Visit Lost Voices of Fentanyl – https://www.LVOF.org – where April and her dedicated volunteers are committed to working with bereaved families, communities and politicians about this deadly drug.
