Mac (grandson of MSTH Helen Jennens) is 13 years old and lives in Kelowna. His father, Tyler, overdosed last January on pure fentanyl that was disguised as heroin. Tyler had been struggling with an opiate addiction since 2010, after he ruptured his Achilles playing football and was prescribed Oxycontin. Tyler’s addiction quickly escalated to heroin shortly after his older brother Rian, Mac’s uncle, died of his own prescription-drug overdose in 2011.
