I have a very special episode to share this week. I had a virtual recording with Samantha Tirone, who is an amazing woman with a powerful story. Samantha was engaged to a wonderful man named Ryan, but two months before their wedding he passed away from an overdose. This life-shattering event caused Samantha to reevaluate what was truly important in her life and begin to be an advocate for those suffering from addiction. Despite how painful it is to share, Samantha tells her story as an effort to normalize these types of difficult conversations and reassure those suffering that they are not alone. You can follow Sam (and her dance troop) at @DECAdancecomp on Instagram. If you or a loved one is sufferring from addiction or substance abuse, you can call 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or visit https://www.samhsa.gov.
