We currently have two programs available:

UNBREAKABLE – (for ages 15-25)

The story of Matthew Van Masters, his life, his actions and his death.  Matthew was a gifted artist, musician, tattoo artist and loved by many.  He was haunted by an emotional pain that he could not let go of or allow to heal.  He started with alcohol and moved into prescription drugs in October 2010.  He combined Xanax and Oxycodone on the evening of March 7, 2011.  He was found the morning of March 8, 2011 with no pulse, we did CPR, he was rushed to Parker Adventist Hospital and ended up in ICU for 3 days.  He died March 10, 2011 at 4:44pm. 

Matthew’s story is not, unfortunately,  uncommon.  Matthew’s mother, Marguerite, documented this tragic and painful ordeal, including the hospital, preparing for his funeral services and the funeral services.  This life wrenching experience has driven Marguerite, who has been speaking professionally for over 20 years, to start down the path of educating young adults on the deadly danger of experimenting and or using prescription drugs. 

This program is REAL.  This program is graphic and shares the incredible gifts Matthew had with music and art and his unnecessary and untimely death to educate and possibly shock  young adults about the reality of the misuse of prescription drugs.  Matthew had a tattoo on his stomach that said “unbreakable”, the human body is not “unbreakable.”  Marguerite and other young adults, some of Matthew’s friends, will also speak at this presentation.

EYE OF THE STORM – (for parents and adults)

The Eye of the Storm program is for parents and adults who want to be enlightened and educated about the reality, the misuse and the shocking statistics of the dangers of prescription drugs.

Marguerite will share her painful experience, journey and tragic death of her son, Matthew Van Masters.  Matthew died from an accidental overdose of Xanax and Oxycodone on March 10, 2011.  Marguerite will talk about all the things she missed that possibly could have saved her son’s life. 

Attendees will learn what to look for in their children, in their homes and discover about available programs and where to get help.
