A Bit of Background
Complicated Grief: Mourning the Loss Of An Addict
Here at Threads Of Life Foundation it is our mission to provide comfort to children and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one to addiction and/or suicide
When the founder of Threads of Life Foundation, Lynn Logan, started the charity it had been intended to offer no cost sewing lessons to those that are less fortunate in her community. But then Lynn experienced the loss of her 38 years young son to heart disease and methamphetamine addiction on her birthday, December 4, 2022. After Lynn went through a period of grieving, she became very curious as to why it was so difficult for any addict to rehabilitate. Especially a methamphetamine addict. This led her to a mission to answer the whys. Lynn has done extensive research to understand more about addiction and what could possibly be done to change the direction of its ugly path. She has learned so much but feels there is so much more for her to learn. She came upon an interview by LA Times bestselling author, Sam Quinones. Lynn watched a couple of his interviews and found out about his newest book called The Least of These: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth. Thanks to Sam Quinones, Lynn was able to expand her knowledge of addiction and what needs to be done in this country before so many parents keep losing their kids to addiction and overdose. There are several goals that Lynn wants to achieve with the foundation and you can view those goals on a page that she has set up specifically for that.
