News of Interest: Grieving Mom Pleas for Any Witness to Call for Help

[July 6, 2018 — Independent Tribune, Concord, NC] In Daughter’s Overdose Death Spurs Mom to Raise Awareness, reporter Erin Weeks shares the story of Amy Sloop-Morris, whose 19-year-old daughter Taylor died of a fentanyl overdose last November. Amy learned that several people may have known that Taylor had become unresponsive, but they failed to call for help — and she pleas for people, even if they are involved with drugs at the scene, to call for help to save someone’s life: “‘I have learned that there are so many other fathers and mothers out there like me with almost identical stories, and every day now I find someone new who has lost their child.'” Learn more about Amy’s advocacy and education efforts at her “Justice for Taylor” Facebook page.
