After KyHRC provided a Naloxone Training in Valley Station on October 12, ten days later a mother saved her son from a heroin overdose with Naloxone she had received from the training.
The training was set up in Valley Station by Kristen Keller in memory of her brother, Parrish Keller, who passed away from an overdose on February 11, 2015.
Phyllis Reed Richardson who also has lost a son, Zack Reed on March 13, 2015, volunteered her time to assist the KyHRC in providing the training to the Valley Station community as well.
Councilman David Yates, District 25, spoke briefly before the training and Vicki Welch, District 13, was in attendance.
Because of the efforts of a few passionate people, a young man is alive today.
KyHRC is grateful this man survived his overdose an is currently receiving help.
