Project SLB Offers Prayers for Hope and Healing in Marion County

Posted: Updated:
FAIRMONT -

The Project SLB Foundation offered prayers for hope and healing event on Tuesday evening.

Anyone who is or was affected by drug addiction was able to attend.

This could be someone who was addicted to drugs, has a family member who is, or who knows someone who passed away from drug addiction.

Candles were lit by everyone in attendance and everyone sang an uplifting song.

Guests also wrote down addictions and put them in a box, the "God Box" that would later be burned to symbolically get rid of those addictions.

Nancy Sickles said her daughter died just a few weeks ago from a drug overdose, so she wanted to attend.

"I know I'm not by myself in this. It's a big fight for all of us, we've got to help our fellow man, help these kids and older people to get away from addiction," said Sickles, who attended with her family.

Organizers said this will become an annual event to help people suffering with addiction.

Project SLB was founded by Tricia and Michael Kyers in memory of their son, Sonny, who committed suicide in 2011.

Project SLB is focused on suicide prevention and awareness.
