Thank you Danielle Ratliff at WSIC for having me as a guest on your show and for helping me to shine a light on the horrific Opioid Crisis in our country. (the show replay information is listed in this post) Together we will make a difference! #HDLifeThis week, I spotlighted a local non-profit, The HD Life Foundation. I interviewed Debbie Dalton, who has experienced incredible tragedy. Her son, Hunter Dalton shockingly overdosed from recreational drugs laced with illicit Fentanyl in 2016. She has since turned pain into purpose and now educates others about the dangers of recreational drug use through the HD Life Foundation.
To learn more about The HD Life Foundation, visit thehdlife.org/. Debbie is available for presentations for groups of any size and they are currently seeking hole sponsors and raffle prizes for their upcoming golf tournament fundraiser, March 29th..

If we can get control over where this fentanyl comes from if it does cross over the borders maybe we can all start there and trying to get control of this. 💕🙏
My heart and my prayers go out to you and your family, it never gets easy it never goes away but you always have to remember stay in your heart and he's a whisper away. 💕💕🙏

I have read their information on Hunter and I know how painful that is I've never heard of this drug into this year when I saw some of the postings on Facebook.
I’m a high school teacher and I try to educate my students about this lethal substance.
Can you give more information like where it's found who makes it what country does it come from educate I guess the public more what does it look like the color is it a powder or pill and how many people are actually reaching out to schools and making children understand this.
I've heard so much about it and it's such a sad sad thing and for people to sell that to these kids with no knowledge of what it is or give it to him is the same thing as shooting them and letting them die these people that sell this make it produce it should go to prison just like anyone else
Very honored to receive the Dogwood Award from Josh Stein, the Attorney General of North Carolina. I accept this award on behalf of Hunter’s family and friends. We all love and miss him and will continue to honor his legacy of love by fighting to make sure nobody else suffers the unbearable pain of loosing someone to this epidemic! Thank you Mr. Stein for this recognition and for all you and your office is doing to combat The Opioid Crisis. #HDLife ... See MoreSee Less

Jonny Stapes I wrote this song in honor of my friend Hunter Dalton who tragically passed away. After hearing this song, Hunter's mom knew she wanted to use this as an instrument to educate and warn about the dangers of recreational drugs. Together, along with Krucifix Productions, we created this music video to share his story. To learn more go to www.thehdlife.org... See MoreSee Less
Blown away by Myers Park Dream Team and their fearless leader Sivonne Stone I had the opportunity to speak to the students and parents of Myers Park High School and was humbled by how gracious and receptive both audiences were. Every School needs a principle like Mr.Bosco, an educator like Sivonne and a dream team program. These students are going to go on to do great things and will make good choices as they navigate life. The entire dream team was amazing but I have to give a special shout out to the team leader of Game Changer night, Mark Dillon. Not only did he do a great job but he also reminded me of Hunter Dalton. #HDLife ... See MoreSee Less
