We are a family deeply impacted by drug addiction. Our Son and Brother Michael, tragically lost his battle with drug addiction on November 8, 2016. Michael fought addiction for a number of years and in many ways, we also learned the struggle and anguish of addiction every step of the way.
As a family, we spent countless hours over the last six years thinking about whether Michael would be okay and live a healthy and sober life. We know that our family is not alone in this fight against drug addiction. We hope that other families do not have to go through the tragic loss of their loved one. The vision for Michael Sena Memorial Fund was inspired by Michael Sena in hoping to raise awareness about drug addiction and bringing together resources for those seeking treatment and in recovery. Through this event, we want to inspire hope for addicts and their families that it is possible to remain sober and live a healthy life.
