Rappelling down a 17-story building in my forties was NEVER on my bucket list. I was perusing social media one day and a friend of mine, who is in the middle of the battle of her life with her son, posted that she would be rappelling down a building in honor of her son. What? What does that mean? I clicked on the link and found shatterproof.org.
Shatterproof is a national organization committed to protecting children from addiction to alcohol or other drugs and ending the stigma and suffering of those affected by the disease.
Through my epic two year battle with my son, the stigma from addiction is what affected me the most, down to the center of my core. The lives behind those addicts matter, God loves them deeply just as much as you or me. Based on our personal experiences we had through addiction and recovery, I want to bring more awareness and change to the uneducated.
