Dylan's Story - How Heroin Stole His Life
March 11, 2013 was the day that I found out my son, Dylan Bradley Pearson 18, my only child was using heroin. By the time I found out, heroin had already gotten its grip on him. It was the beginning of my worst nightmare.
On January 31, 2015 at 12:45 AM we said good night. Before I tuned away to go to bed, as with every opportunity I had, I told him I loved him. Dylan went to bed. He never woke up. Our worst nightmare had come true. My only child dead.
