I need your help! Let's help spread Jill's story to the newcomers! Please purchase one or more necklaces to fund this worthwhile project! Thank you.
Jill P, my daughter, passed away on January 25, 2013 after 28 years of sobriety! Her first day of sobriety was at age 18 and while she suffered cancer, 28 years later, she refused to take painkillers because she wanted to "die sober." What an inspiration!
Jill's whole life is an inspiration against all odds. Her father died when she was 7 and her mother died in 1985. Her mother asked me to become Jill's guardian as well as to Jill's younger sister, Julie.
Jill and I attended meetings together until she married. She continued to be an active member of a "12 step program" and she became a race car builder and driver. She was very well known on the SCCA Racing Circuit. It was her dream and she made it come true and she always credited her sobriety with her dream coming true.
I am putting Jill's story in bookmark form to commemorate what would have been her 30th year sober and distributing them to treatment centers where her story will be an inspiration to every newcomer.
