DEADLINE: MAY 1, 2017 – 11:59PM
This year for Mother’s Day, in honor of the strength and commitment mothers provide for their children and families, Swift River and Shame Kills are proud to sponsor the “My Mother, My Hero” essay contest. This contest is free with a $200 prize for the winning essay!
In the world of addiction, it is often the families who help pull a loved one out of the clutches of substance abuse. It’s through their support that many people find healing, and quite often it is a mom (or a mother figure) who is always there in a time of need. Of course, it’s also likely that a mom has been hurt most in watching her child suffer the pain of addiction, which doesn’t just affect the addict, it touches everyone in their life.
In 250 words or less, tell us why your mother is your hero.
