    Came across this amazing article on HuffPo and wanted to share:

    "18 months ago, I wasn’t sure if I was going to live or die. But because I was able to access treatment for addiction, and now live in sustained recovery, I began a 2,500-mile trek to the Democratic National Convention as an elected delegate this past Saturday. On my way to Philadelphia, I hope to shed light on America’s most urgent health crisis and inspire our policy leaders of both parties into action. I hope they’re listening."
