Shannon Degraaf was in attendance as part of a group called Moms Stop the Harm. The group includes Canadian mothers who have come together for support as families who have lost loved ones to substance abuse or are currently dealing with those issues within their families.
She said the group is pushing for more compassion for those dealing with drug issues.
“There’s not a lot of (compassion) out there,” she said. “We’re trying to stop the stigma so people will come forward and admit they have a problem and get help before it’s too late.”
