Alecia M. Coglianese was a very selfless, giving young woman from Illinois and was always the go to person for people in need of help. She was a true sweetheart and was cherished by her family and friends. Nobody would suspect that Alecia had a drug problem by looking at her. Unfortunately, on September 23, 2015, Alecia lost her battle with addiction and died from a drug overdose.
“I never want another parent to feel the pain I suffer from losing my baby girl,” says Alecia's mother, Kim. “Unfortunately, there are many parents in my shoes.”
“We need national help. from state to state. No more shame or blame. Wake up America!”
