Mission Statement

Columbia, SC December 2022
#FKU Moms & SC Governor Henry McMaster
February 2023 Columbia, SC
#FKU Moms testifying at Fentanyl Trafficking Hearings
 
#FKU RISES FROM THE ASHES

#FKU, FentanylKillsU.org, was founded almost 2 years ago by a mom who lost her son to a “one pill can kill” fentanyl poisoning scenario.  Some moms had children suffering from depression and bought what they thought was a legitimate anti-depression pill, only it was laced with fentanyl. Other moms had children battling addiction, were recovered, relapsed and bought from a dealer cutting illicit fentanyl into various other drugs.

All different situations, but the same devastating ending – tragic loss of children we loved immensely and NEVER thought we’d lose this young, or for this reason.  The journey is heartbreaking, so we joined together to provide unconditional support to those who are also going through the same thing regardless of age, race, sex or scenario: fentanyl does not discriminate, and neither do we. 

We are based in York, SC but we welcome anyone with the same desire to overcome this crisis by uniting and fighting together to prevent other innocent lives from ending too soon.   

 

OUR MISSION IS TO:
  1. Provide support to those who have lost loved ones by talking, meeting, and working collaboratively to identify any and all ways to save other lives from fentanyl poisonings

  2. Engage with Legislators and push for fentanyl laws so dealers in our state face severe consequences if they are caught selling fentanyl

  3. Identify and engage in speaking opportunities at local schools/churches/organizations to incorporate drug awareness programs in their curriculum

  4. Spread the word about fentanyl dangers and how of how prevalent fentanyl is in EVERY community through community awareness events, billboard campaigns, and rallies

  5. Collaborate with law enforcement to identify and prosecute known dealers in an effort to reduce the availability of illicit fentanyl on our streets

  6. Partner with health care providers to increase access to naloxone (NARCAN), a life-saving overdose reversal drug
