A father who lost his 20-year-old son to an overdose and refused to stay silent. A mother who fulfilled a promise to write an honest obituary if her 20-year-old daughter died from an overdose—and hasn’t stopped telling their heartbreaking story. Carmen Capozzi and Michelle Schwartzmier are linked in a way that no parents ever should be. What happened to them can happen to anyone and their stories epitomize the tragedy and inspiration that author Scott Brown found while chronicling the opioid epidemic for almost a year.


Featuring a foreword by two-time Stanley Cup winner and Pittsburgh Penguins star, Kevin Stevens, "Hope & Heartbreak: Beyond The Numbers of the Opiod Epidemic" takes readers through the grassroots of America’s No. 1 health crisis and looks at it through the people who are living it. Their experiences shine a light on a complex problem to which there is no easy answer. Their stories will make you cry, smile, question—and can help you save someone you love.
