Anthony died as result a heroin overdose on March 30th 2014. Anthony suffered many years of heroin addiction as a result of a motor cycle accident that left him with a broken femur and ultimately led him to become addicted to pain medication.
Anthony was best known for his great smile, his humor his practical jokes, and huge heart. Anthony’s excelled at anything he put his mind to. One of Anthony's proudest moment was when he became a father.
Anthony’s son, Dominic at 6 can barely remember his Daddy. At such a young age addiction has already taken so much from him.
Dominic visits his Daddy at the cemetery, it’s the reality of what drug addiction has done to our family.
As a mother the pain is unbearable, we are not supposed to bury our children.
And yet we are losing 129 people a day from the disease of addiction.
I am asking for your support so that no family has to go through the pain of losing a child to addiction.
With education, community awareness, and outreach programs like Anthony's Way we can make a difference.
