In Episode 198, I speak with Laura Woody, administrator of Lost Voices of Fentanyl and Founder of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren While Grieving The Loss Of A Child, about her son Jimmy’s death at 29 to fentanyl poisoning.
Jimmy was involved in music as a young boy and enjoyed his band, James and The Nasty Peach, a thoroughly unique name!
He loved his niece and nephew and enjoyed being around them, as seen in the photos below.
And we also spoke about how Grandparents are raising their grandchildren left behind from their children’s death. It takes a toll on parents who were ready to retire and now their savings and time are required to care for what Laura calls “Fentanyl Orphans” and “Fentanyl Grandfamilies” very appropriate titles.
We also spoke about the 3rd Annual rally on Saturday, September 23rd on the lawn in front of the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. You can find details in the press release here.
Please do your best to attend the Rally to show America and its elected officials that they need to do more to help the surviving families and to bring awareness to this lethal drug so less families will need to survive the death of their children.
