In February 2018, we founded KK Fearless, a non-profit, following the one-year anniversary of my sister Krystle's passing due to a drug overdose. Krystle, a vibrant, loving, and talented soul, fell victim to substance use disorder at 27. Tragically, less than three years later, in November 2020, my brother Kevan also lost his battle to the same affliction at the age of 30. Kevan, a kind, gentle, and skilled fisherman, was taken from us.
Their stories, unfortunately, are not unique. In 2023, the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics reported a staggering 110,469 deaths from drug overdoses in a single year, with the numbers on the rise. While KK Fearless was established in honor of Krystle and Kevan, they represent the countless individuals struggling with substance use disorder.
KK Fearless understands the power of music in healing and recovery. We host benefit concerts to raise funds, enabling us to donate musical instruments to local treatment facilities. These instruments become tools for individuals battling addiction, helping them on their journey to recovery.
With your support, we can make a meaningful impact on hundreds of lives, assisting them in overcome substance use disorder, reinforcing their recovery, and combating the stigma associated with this disease. Thank you for standing with us!
