Michael was an energetic, loving, and selfless person that always knew how to make people smile. Extremely intelligent, Michael graduated as one of the top ten in his high school class and received a scholarship to Northeastern University. He was a talented musician, with the ability to play the piano that most could only dream of. 

Despite all of his accomplishments and talents, Michael turned to drugs to fill a void, which took him down a path that neither he nor his family were prepared for.  Michael spiraled out of control until he ended his own suffering in 2009. 

Michael’s death put an end to his own suffering, but not for those he left behind. As time passed, it became very evident that Michael was not alone in his struggle with addiction.  Many families and people are affected by addiction with no hope in sight. 

As a result, three sisters created this foundation. Together the foundation has grown to consist of a diverse board of directors and volunteers committed to making a difference.
