Who We Are
We are a group of concerned parents and loved ones directly impacted by the Fentanyl crisis. We have lost children/ loved ones to illicit fentanyl poisonings or have someone who is in active illicit fentanyl addiction - there are many scenarios. We are are a group that supports each other unconditionally and are focused on ending the stigma of drug use, promoting fentanyl education, creating community awareness, working cooperatively with law enforcement, getting laws concerning Fentanyl changed and always learning and spreading the word about how deadly and prevalent illicit fentanyl is:
According to DEA Lab testing in 2022, 6 out of 10 fentanyl-laced fake pills contains a potentially lethal dose of illicit fentanyl
In 2021,107,622 people died by drug poisoning in the United States. Fentanyl, the synthetic opioid most commonly found in fake pills, is the primary driver in this alarming increase in poisoning deaths
Fake pills have been found in all 50 states and the District of Columbia
Fake pills are easily accessible and often sold on social media and e-commerce platforms, making them available to anyone with a smartphone, including minors
In 2022, DEA seized more than 50,600,000 fake pills often laced with fentanyl - more than double the number of fake fentanyl pills seized in 2021
#FKU Parents Plea
for Fentanyl Legislature
JANUARY 19, 2023 COLUMBIA, S.C. — Numerous parents who have lost their children to street fentanyl are calling on the South Carolina General Assembly to do more against drug dealers.
Currently in South Carolina, there’s no mandatory minimum sentence for people convicted of pushing large amounts of fentanyl. On Thursday, families went to Columbia to plead with lawmakers to take further action.
Amid tears and intense emotions in the legislature, the parents spoke out wanting to make sure their kids’ lives didn’t end in vain. The lawmakers heard their stories and then talked about ways to create tougher penalties for dealers who push fentanyl.
April 4th, 2023 York, SC A group of local moms is working to save lives by raising awareness about the dangers of fentanyl.
They’ve started a billboard campaign showing the faces of their sons and daughters who accidently died taking the powerful drug.
A mother's heart aches with a pain untold,
As she loses a child to the fentanyl hold.
A drug that creeps in and steals away the light,
Leaving behind a mother's endless night.
She held her baby close, with love so true,
But now she's left with only memories anew.
Her heart is shattered, torn into a million pieces,
As she tries to make sense of the crisis that increases.
She thought she knew the world, and all its pain,
But nothing could prepare her for this loss insane.
Her tears fall like rain, with no end in sight,
As she tries to find the strength to face the night.
But through her grief and sorrow, she finds a glimmer,
Of hope that one day, she'll be reunited with her member.
And though the road ahead may be long and hard,
She'll hold her child's memory close, within her heart.
So to all the mothers who've lost a child to this plight,
Know that you're not alone, in this endless night.
And though the journey ahead may be rough and tough,
Together we'll find a way to heal and rise above.
