Brandon has spoken at several of our youth opioid summits and regardless of what region of the country we're in, in arenas filled with thousands of kids, you could hear a pin drop as he shares his story. He’s honest, he’s engaging and he’s passionate about recovery. I'm grateful to have him in this fight alongside me.”
