My son, Matthew James Staton - 7/16/84-5/16/16, lost his battle with addiction & overdosed on heroin. This changed my life, his sister's life, his Dad's life, his baby girl Ava Brooklyn Staton, & so many other family members & friends lives dramatically & we will never be the same.
Matt struggled with demons for several years before he finally lost his battle, it was devastating & traumatic to lose him the way we did. I miss his smile, his unique way of making me feel so special, his creative & talent passion for music, his hugs.... So many things we lost on that day. I am thankful to be a part of Shatterproof & have the opportunity to somehow reach out to others who are struggling or families who are grieving.
