April Babcock, a resolute mother, has weathered the darkest storm a parent can endure. In the cruel grasp of 2019, she was forced to bid a heartbreaking farewell to her precious son, Austen, a victim of the sinister clutches of fentanyl poisoning. Her agony, however, did not cripple her spirit; it ignited an unquenchable fire within her soul.

With unwavering determination, April Babcock's anguished heart transmuted into a relentless force of change. Her unyielding resolve manifested in bold actions as she fearlessly reached out to the corridors of power, demanding accountability from government officials. Her rallying cry echoed through the hallowed halls of authority, compelling them to confront the scourge of fentanyl poisoning head-on.

Out of the ashes of her personal tragedy, April forged a rallying point for kindred spirits whose lives had been forever marred by this insidious peril. In founding the Lost Voices of Fentanyl (LVOF), she discovered a tapestry of shared sorrow and collective resilience. A grassroots nonprofit organization emerged, a phoenix of purpose and unity, composed of grieving families and concerned citizens united by a singular mission: to halt the epidemic of Illicit Fentanyl Poisoning and shatter its chains of devastation.

As the sun rises on September 23, 2023, April Babcock's vision will crescendo in the heart of the nation's capital, Washington D.C. There, against the backdrop of the storied monuments, she will lead the charge in the third annual national rally—an unrelenting call to arms that will echo across the land. The rallying cry will pierce through the walls of indifference, a clarion demand that can no longer be silenced or ignored.

Lost Voices of Fentanyl is not a mere collective of bereaved souls; it is a beacon of action, an agent of awareness, and a sentinel of prevention. It embarks on a formidable mission to expose the channels of supply, to unmask the enigmatic machinations of the CCP, to unveil the shadowy dealings of the Mexican Cartels, and to unflinchingly confront the harbingers of death: drug dealers and traffickers, modern-day serial executioners.

A relentless spotlight is cast on the heart-wrenching scenes unfolding on American soil. The public must bear witness to the tragedy unfolding in our midst, a stark reminder of the urgent need for unassailable fortifications that shield the lives of our fellow citizens. The very fabric of the American promise is under siege, and the clarion call of Lost Voices of Fentanyl is a thunderous reminder that the guardians of our nation must rise to the occasion. April Babcock and her compatriots embody a spirit that refuses to be shackled by grief alone. Instead, they wield it as a formidable weapon, an instrument of change, an unbreakable resolve to transform sorrow into strength.

The legacy of Lost Voices of Fentanyl is etched in the hearts of those who march alongside, an indomitable force demanding a safer, brighter, and more just world.
