Topic Talk by Becky Savage

Becky is the mother of two sons, Nick (19) and Jack (18), who both passed away on June 14, 2015. The reason for their passing: acute alcohol and oxycodone overdose. Both graduated with honors, were hockey team captains with bright futures. At a graduation party, they chose to drink, and they chose to take a pill when it was offered to them. These choices were mistakes, and her boys paid the ultimate price for them. Becky has an incredibly moving, informative story that everyone needs to hear. She will share on behalf of the 525 Foundation, created in the boys’ honor.
