My son Jarrett died in October after a long struggle with addiction. I cannot sit on the sidelines and be consumed by grief – I have to take action in Jarrett’s honor to help other families who are being devastated by the disease of addiction.

In my search for a way to help, I decided to support Shatterproof, a national non-profit that Gary Mendell founded to end the devastation alcohol and substance addiction is causing so many families. After losing his son Brian to addiction in 2011, Gary resigned as CEO of his hotel company (HEI) and personally donated $5 million to start Shatterproof four years ago.

Shatterproof already has led campaigns resulting in new legislation in 15 states for prescription drug monitoring programs. Most recently, Shatterproof’s Substance Use Task Force convinced 16 of the major insurance payers (including Aetna, Cigna and United Health Care) to adopt 8 standards of care in treating addiction. Click here for a full list of Shatterproof’s Accomplishments. I am working with Shatterproof to help those families who are in distress because of active addiction or who are coping with the loss of a loved one to addiction.

Here are the ways you can honor Jarrett’s memory. Thanks in advance for helping us:

Every dollar we raise together will advance Shatterproof’s advocacy efforts, provide evidence-based resources for families, and help end the stigma of addiction.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
