In Loving Memory of Marc Kane

Jaclyn Brown

Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page! I am raising funds and awareness for Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastation the disease of addiction causes families.

My brother, Marc, passed away on November 16, 2018, due to a heroin overdose. Marc battled with addiction and depression for many years after a car accident in November 2010. He was always optimistic that he could win his battle on his own, but the hold that addiction had was much stronger than any of us could have ever imagined. My mission now is to be an advocate for people and their families who need help in dealing with this terrible disease and help end the stigma of addiction.

On Sunday, May 5th, I will be hosting a memorial event called Marc's Mile at McClintock High School in Tempe, AZ. It will be a 1 mile event to walk in Marc's honor, celebrate his life, and help build a Shatterproof community in Phoenix (and beyond) that is stronger than addiction.

Shatterproof is changing the conversation about addiction. They are saving lives by helping pass laws that prevent more of our loved ones from becoming addicted to prescription opioids and supporting first responders who can rescue those who overdose. Your support helps expand their efforts to support prevention, treatment, rescue and recovery of addiction.

Thank you for taking the time out to visit the page and I hope to see you on May 5th!

My family has experienced the depths of addiction and loss as a result of addiction. Your mourning and healing is a beautiful and unique process. I wish I could be at the walk, but I’ll be in CA for my best friends baby shower.

Marc meant so much to so many people. Not only are we honoring him, but also bringing awareness to reduce the stigma of addiction. Starting the conversation is the most important first step.
