Jeff has been a friend of mine and the station a long time. He recently told me about his project and I thought it was worth sharing because it hits close to home with many families. The opioid epidemic. Here is what Jeff had to say:

Hey Joey know I've had a vision of doing some awesome stuff. Well..since losing two relatives to heroin...I have created a program titled The Lazaros Project: Reviving our Youth. I'm never one to blow my own horn...but I have some extremely valuable stories of growing up in the D that can help our young people understand the dangers and consequences of drug use and abuse. Because I'm not a famous ex athlete or someone who's donated millions to MSU..its hard to get taken seriously. Please watch my attached video to see how serious I am . Thanks brother Joey

It's pretty sobering. in 2017, over 70 thousand Americans died of opioid overdoses.
