Gone Too Soon Memorial Campaign for Opioid Awareness

Talking about opioids is difficult. Opioids take good people from their families. Opioid overdose can happen to your family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers. Maybe it already has. 

We’re compiling stories to introduce these difficult discussions. We humbly ask you to share your stories as well.
We’ll display posters of those lost to opioids with dynamic descriptions of the person (i.e., Musician, Compassionate). These posters will be displayed throughout our community at various locations and times and treated/stored with respect. We would be honored to have you and your loved ones help us educate people on the dangers of opioids and to prevent future overdoses.

If you are interested in helping and sharing your loved ones story, download the SCOC permission form and  email it to Marlee Turner at mturner@ssvms.org. Permission must come from next of kin (i.e., parent, spouse).
