I first heard the story of Aaron Rubin late one night last year while watching VH1’s Celebrity Rehab. Aaron had everything going for him, but was addicted to Oxycontin. In his early 20s he overdosed and was in a coma for 2 weeks. During that time his family planned his funeral, expecting the worst. After 2 weeks though, Aaron woke up. Aaron is now a quadriplegic, can’t speak and needs around the clock care BUT he is fully cognitive.
Aaron and Sherrie (his mom) travel around the Southwest speaking to schools and the community about the dangers of prescription drug abuse. It’s a moving story and has such a big impact on the areas they visit.
Aaron and Sherrie will be visiting La Paz County during Red Ribbon Week. They are visiting many of our schools with even more being bussed in from outlying areas to see the presentation.
Monday the 24th of Oct. at 6pm they will have a presentation at Wallace Dome for the entire community. You are welcome and encouraged to bring your children to this presentation as it will be slightly different from the one they hear in school.
