Siena's Portait in Flowers

Siena’s Story

Siena was a beautiful person inside and out who was taken from this world far too soon. She was a mere 21 years old when she died of a fentanyl overdose on September 14, 2020 in the basement of her own home.

Our Story

After witnessing how addiction can take loved ones away forever, it was time for a change. I, Sherry Jo, witnessed my daughter suffer for years with not only the addiction, but the judgment that comes with it as well. Addicts are human beings: they feel and they hurt like any other person does.
