Sharon Schlingmann started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

To bring greater awareness to Heroin overdose deaths. We are losing an entire generation of young men and women. My only child Rachael, at the tender age of 23 died of a heroin overdose. Heroin is the leading cause of death in America, more than car accidents. Every 4 minutes we lose a son or daughter to this Disease. We need to share with the country what an epidemic this truly is. We need to educate our children before we lose more. There needs to be an affordable long-term care program for addicts to break away from this disease. 30 days is not enough. A day we should pray for an end of heroin in America.
