Why I Walk
I walk to spread awareness in memory of my Son Jeremy who lost his battle on June 5, 2017 with co-occurring disorders of Bipolar and addiction We need a cultural shift in understanding Addiction. Most addiction begins with attempts to relieve physical or psychic pain and doesn’t take long to change the structure of the brain and become a disease in itself.
A Little Bit About Jeremy
Jeremy was a special son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson and friend. Loved by all. He was funny, kind, and thoughtful. He had not found a medicine without side effects to manage his bipolar. He thought he had found his answer but it didn’t take long for his life to be taken away by fentanyl toxicity. Since dealers have been passing off fentanyl for other drugs deaths have tripled. Youth need to be aware of this increase in danger.
