Thank you so much Helen and Alyssa for talking to me about Billy and your families struggle with addiction. If you or a loved one is struggling, please reach out for help.
This week I spoke with Sandi Trombino, the mother of Julius, a 23 year old who lost his life to his addiction. I don't think anyone can do her, or her son's story justice. I don't think there is a way to put into words what an amazing person he was, and the impact he had on all the people he met. He was one of a kind. Thank you for sharing your son's story and the impact addiction has had on your life as his mother. This epidemic isn't only affecting the addict, its brothers and sisters and mothers and fathers and best friends too.
The song in the audio is "Miss You" by Julius.
