Praying for Melia’s Recovery

0 Praying for Melias RecoveryIt is a long road to recovery after surviving a drug overdose. Far too many families are experiencing the devastating emotional and financial burden that follows such a tragic event. Prescription drug abuse is a growing epidemic and our youth are falling prey to deadly addicting medications that are being touted as “the greatest high”.
The trouble is, kids don’t realize the side effect of these addictive pills is brain injury or death.
Our heartfelt thanks go to the entire staff at Wilcox hospital who were so wonderful and caring for Melia through her most critical stages. We also thank the dear friends who volunteered their time to help Melia through some very intense times. Also we extend our gratitude to each person involved with her treatment on Oahu.
