My beautiful 18-year-old daughter Mikhaila died on MAY 5, 2012 from a prescription drug overdose. My world is forever changed…
Join me on a journey of personal self-discovery and healing by gaining a better understanding of the conditions that resulted in her addiction to prescription drugs, and exploring what can be done to prevent another young life from being lost in such a senseless way.
