Hello everyone! My name is JoLynn Baker Seagriff and I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful team! My story is long but the abridged version of it is I lost my son 20 months ago to an overdose, I am raising his son, I have to other boys currently in active addiction and I am a certified Recovery Coach. I have been looking for a place or organization where I can play a part to help spread awareness, education, Community support, and love.
I found You! For me it was like a light in the dark a community of people trying to help others!
Thank you for the open arms and the opportunity to be a part of such a great cause and help spread light to so many.
All my BIG LOVE TO YOU ALL 💙
On June 4, 2015 my life changed forever, our family lost Amber to an accidental overdose. Amber and I had a very close relationship, she was a very smart and caring young woman. My daughters thought of her as a big sister and my wife and I as a daughter. She lived with us for many years and our family tried so hard to help her with the struggles with mental illness (including addiction).
After we lost Amber, I met several people who have been fighting this crisis and become close friends with them. Carmen as Sage’s Army and Laura from Not One More Pittsburgh have been so supportive and helpful. With their help and guidance we turned our grieving into helping others.
