Heroin deaths spike across Chicago area, authorities say ~ please read the article if you have children ~
Hoping to spare another family grief, Laliberte’s sister, Chelsea, and parents formed a non-profit—Live 4 Lali—to help educate parents about illegal substances.
Live 4 Lali, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about drug awareness. We live in an age where drug use is rampant and information is either limited or ignored. Many people suffer from drug addictions or are unknowingly on that path and want help but may feel scared and alone, untrusting or unaware. Many families and friends of users may not know of their condition, are in denial, or don’t know how to deal with the problem. Our organization will not only educate but act as a resource center.
All contributed funds go towards our cause, rehabilitation centers, hospitals and other non-profit corporations.
We were founded in memory of Alex N. Laliberte who tragically passed away on December 15, 2008 at 20 years old from drug-related causes. His time was cut short but his memory will always live on. We hope to do that through helping others as he did in his life.
“This has been horrific,” Gary Laliberte said. “He should still be here.”
Yes he should and so should my son!
