FRANKLIN – Sometimes, through tragedy, opportunity presents itself. That is exactly the case for a pair of Sussex County mothers who after losing their sons came together to plan a walk to “change the face of addiction,” with each having a different definition of what that means.
“I was thinking it meant for people to understand addiction. To understand it’s a disease. And I thought maybe if I stepped forward more people would be able to face addiction head on and say, “I”m an addict. I have a child who is an addict and move forward” said Elaine Tizzano, of Franklin, whose son George died last year at the age of 27.
