Brandi’s Wish Foundation

A wish that every teen live a drug free life

Brandi’s Wish Foundation was founded in March 2011 out of a personal tragedy and sudden death of 18 year old Brandi Shea Meshad due to accidental prescription drug poisoning. Our mission is to raise awareness through education and offer preventative 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 addition and the victims of the disease and proactively work to educate children, parents and community embers to remove the stigma associated with addiction.

Our goals are:
To actively work in changing state legislation and pass laws to protect our children from the dangers of prescription drug misuse and abuse.

To work with schools and create programs to educate families and teens to the danger of abusing prescription medications.

To offer referral services and guidance to those families in need of rehabilitative and substance abuse recovery programs.

To help families in need of financial assistance if they have a teen in crisis and cannot afford the cost of rehabilitative programs.

At Brandi’s Wish Foundation we strive to conquer and overcome the fear and helplessness caused from the disease and brain disorder of addiction and to empower teens and their families through awareness, education, support and compassion.

Thank you for embracing Brandi’s Wish Foundation. Together we will save lives.

President and loving mother of Brandi Shea Meshad
