  1. My sincere condolences on your loss….I can relate in a very personal way. I lost my daughter, Brianne Ashley, just 20 years old, on Sept 20, 2010 – dilaudid and alcohol. Dilaudid someone sold her or slipped her (depending on the ‘story’). A poor investigation and no charges. Congratulations on your accomplishments – getting that person charged – and for keeping up the fight! I can only hope to get that justice for Brianne….

    1. Let me correct that date, Sept 17, 2010…it was 4 days before her Birthday on Sept 21….I never want to remember the day she died…..

      1. I am so so sorry to hear you have experienced the same loss as my family . Where abouts are you located? If you are not satisfied with the RCMP’s investigation you can always file a complaint like I did. The only reason my brothers case was investigated properly was because of my complaint against the RCMP.

  2. Hi Amy! I see and hear you have met John….and when I am in Canada again, I hope we , too, can meet! We’re open to every piece of advice that can help us indeed pull one supplier out of the supply chain, save one precious life….keep it up! We’ll stay in the fight with you! Let me know if I can do anything!! Take Super Care!

    1. Donna , I am so sorry we came in contact under these circumstances. I met John and and I have to say it was an honor. The love he has for Brianne is so touching. Yesterday when he told her story it made grown men cry . Even the police officers were in tears. Brianne was so amazingly beautiful. She had such a sparkle in her eye you know she was destined to do wonderful things. I am so glad you guys have the strength to speak out and let Briannes story be told to help save other lives. I feel blessed to know your family , if only for a little while. John has my personal email and phone number. Feel free to give me a call or note anytime. My heart aches for you both .

  3. Thanks Amy! We’re all hurting the very same way…all our lost loved ones are lives stolen…Take Care…we’ll just persevere where they can no longer…

  4. Dear Amy;

    I heard you on CBC Radio a few minutes ago and you were just great.

    So sorry you didn’t get the outcome you were looking for in court. I think a conviction would have sent a strong message about how serious all this is. You, however, were very gracious in your reaction to the news.

    I want to take a moment to congratulate you on your courageous battle in raising awareness around the issue of the dangers of prescription drugs. As we’ve seen in the news lately, this is a much larger problem than most of us would have imagined.

    You are an excellent speaker and I hope you are able to continue to do the great work you’ve been doing in this area. Joshua is lucky to have had such an awesome big sister.

  5. Amy, I heard your recent interview with Rick Howe.

    A. A chronic disease, as defined by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, is a disease lasting three months or longer. About one-fourth of people with chronic conditions have one or more daily activity limitations, often understood as a hindrance or inability to perform major activities in one’s life.1,2

    Prevalence of Specific Chronic Health Conditions
    Overall, 43% of all children were reported to currently have at least 1 of the 20 chronic health conditions assessed in the NSCH. Prevalence across all children aged 0 to 17 years ranged from a low of 0.1% for Tourette’s syndrome to a high of 24.4% for environmental and skin allergies…

    Parenting Chronically Ill Kinds Can Stress Entire Family
    By RICK NAUERT PHD Senior News Editor
    Reviewed by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. on September 20, 2013

    New research chronicles the extra demands placed on parents of chronically ill children and finds that caregiving demands created greater stress then the severity or length of the child’s sickness.

    The study is the first to look at the multiple factors that contribute to parental stress when raising a special needs child, stress that impacts the whole family. Some 15 percent of U.S. families have a chronically ill child with special needs…
