Our Mission

Brandi’s Wish Foundation was founded in March 2011 out of a personal tragedy and the death of 18 year old Brandi Shea Meshad due to prescription drug poisoning. Our mission is to raise awareness through education and offer preventive solutions to teens and their families regarding the dangers of prescription drug misuse and abuse. We believe that every teenager can achieve their wishes and dreams for a healthy and successful future by living a drug-free life. We believe the deaths that occur from the misuse and abuse of prescription medications are preventable. We believe we must change the way communities perceive addiction and the victims of this disease and proactively work to educate children, parents and community members to remove the stigma associated with it.
