Remembering Loved Ones Lost to Addiction

Losing my only child to prescription drugs was one of the worst and most painful experiences of my life. America needs to wake up and join forces in combatting this out of control epidemic. I hope Jason's story may help save one child or help one person walk away, life intact from this disease and it is now considered my many as a disease. Once the medical and mainstream America starts treating it and the victims as such then we will see some major changes and hope for our children and loved ones.
Jason loved life and he loved people. He was happiest when he was helping someone. Friends flocked to him for advice and comraderie. He always had a smile and a laugh to share. It was so painful watching the changes in him as his prescription drug problem grew worse. A knee problem then a car accident left him in a lot of pain. His doctor gave him 6 refills at a time for a very addictive drug, increasig the dosage as his pain and problem worsened. June 4th. 2010, Jason passed away. His 5-year-old son and I watched helplessly as paramedics wheeled him to an ambulance. Chase still cries for his daddy and asks God to let him come home for one more day!! What we would give for one more day!!
