LIVE REAL FOUNDATION

Roscoe, Illinois

Announcement    Live R.E.A.L. is a Charity Foundation breaking stigma by providing education, awareness, resources and support to those who are struggling from mental illness, drug use/addiction and abuses of all kinds.
The passion behind Live R.E.A.L. was born after Bev & Terry lost their oldest son Alex in August 2019 from a fentanyl overdose while doing heroin. Alex had increased his drug use over the years starting with marijuana and alcohol use at 13 years old. By the time Alex turned 20 he was also using prescription pills, cocaine and heroin. Bev & Terry were told after his death that Alex had kept the increase of drug use into cocaine and heroin from them because he was ashamed. Alex had tried to stop using these drugs but without the support from his family and the pressures of social stigma, he had even less of a chance to fight the addiction.

Alex had increased his drug use over the years starting with marijuana and alcohol use at 13 years old. By the time Alex turned 20 he was also using prescription pills, cocaine and heroin. Bev & Terry have been told that Alex had kept the increase of drug use into cocaine and heroin from them because he was ashamed.

This is where the passion behind Live R.E.A.L. was born. Bev hopes that providing education, awareness, resources and support to those who are struggling that she will make a difference in the world. “Imagine how your life would be different if you and those in your circle lived life authentically. Society will change if each of us strive to build relationships with people by sharing your life experiences and willingly walk beside them in difficult times without judgement. Love is contagious!” ~ Bev Pomering
