About this fundraiser

I'm Chelsea Hughes, a mother who has been struggling with addiction and has lost everything. Despite my best efforts, I've fallen short and have lost custody of my children. As hard as that is to tell the world I've finally gotten to a spot where Ive taken accountability for choices which ultimately led me to today. You know I would have never thought this is where I would be or that I would let the hardships or life and depression bring me to where I'm at today. Admittedly I use to see others with addiction and losing everything and I would say to myself "how?"or " how stupid like how would you let it get so bad, I would never do do that". I would never had guessed that depression and hardships in life would lead me to where I am today. But with strength and courage I have overcome that addiction by myself, with my children being the only thing leading me to sobriety, one day I just said to myself what are you doing , put your big girl underwear on and stop feeling sorry for yourself ,your daughter's need you. It's been a struggle to say the least but I havent given up. With your help, I'm determined to get my life back on track and give my children the loving, stable home they deserve. Ater overcoming my addiction, I'm now committed to rebuilding my life and fighting for custody of my children. This journey won't be easy, but I'm ready to face the challenges head-on.

Share this page with your friends, family, and social networks to spread the word about my journey, I use to be embarrassed, shut off everyone and hid my addiction from the world and everyone that I loved, but I realized it's real and I had to face it and realize I have to talk about and there ARE ways to get help, most importantly that I'm not alone. So with that being said another goal of mine is to share my testimony with others who might have or are going through the same storm or maybe that one person who can't find a way out û, I hear them, and they are not alone and we can do it together
