Cory was a varsity baseball and football athlete and a member of the National Honor Society. Cory had a love for the game of baseball. The baseball diamond was the happiest place on earth for him.  His Junior year of high School he suffered a shoulder injury which required surgery. After surgery Cory was prescribed opiates for pain and became addicted to his opiate pain medication and eventually became addicted to heroin. On 7/15/13 Cory suffered a heroin overdose which has left him permanently disabled.

From Adversity to Advocacy as a family, we share our story by going out  to speak at schools and to other organizations about the dangers of drugs and offer a message of hope for those who are faced with addiction.
In an effort to help those others who are dealing with the challenges we once faced we  have formed the Cory's Cause Foundation   Our goal is to help educate individuals about this disease and remove the stigma by educating individuals through sharing Cory's story in the hopes that we can help other families to not endure the pain we have.
