To my community and supporters:
I never thought in a million years I would be writing this or belong to the groups I am now a member of. My daughter, Paige Elizabeth Mazurek, walked on this earth 22 years, 8 months and 19 days before she went heaven on March 30, 2015. Paige was my youngest of five.
My nightmare began on February 15, 2010. At seventeen, Paige needed a root canal. The doctor prescribed opiates. She got her first taste. As teenage girls do, Paige met a boy. But this boy, he introduced her to heroin. Her addiction quickly spiraled out of control. As many addicts do, Paige had several stints in both jail and rehab. Paige would come out with her faith in God renewed and a zest for sobriety. But heroin had its hold. After a few months Paige would relapse. It was a painful cycle for us all. Paige was one of 16 that lost their life that week in Oakland County from an overdose. Her heroin was laced with a toxic level of fentanyl.
Paige's death was a tragic loss for me. But God has a plan in even the most trying of times. Losing my daughter inspired me to create a new 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax deductible, public charity geared towards awareness and recovery from opiate addiction. From this was born Paige's PROMISE.
Paige's PROMISE is dedicated to creating opiate addiction awareness and promoting recovery.
