In Episode 7, Steve Grant shares the story of losing both his sons, his only two children, to overdose. Chris and Kelly died five years apart, but both succumbed to substance use disorder. Steve's ordeal is unimaginable, but somehow he has managed to create a new life for himself. He found healing through giving back and helping others. He started Chris and Kelly's HOPE Foundation and has financially assisted countless other non-profits in the work they do to get and keep young people healthy.
Steve has a new book out about his ordeal and the loss of two sons.
The book, Don't Forget Me: A Lifeline of HOPE for Those Touched by Substance Abuse and Addiction, is coming out soon.
We can all learn from Steve's tragic experience about grief, coping, love and hope!
