This year's CARE Breakfast will be held on Monday, November 12th at the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas. The event will begin at 8:00 a.m.and conclude promptly at 9:00 am.
We are welcoming featured speakers Anita Baglaneas Devlin and her son Mike Devlin who will share the story of Mike’s battle with drug addiction.
With a seemingly perfect life with a loving family, good grades, and the top spot on his high school lacrosse team, Anita was in denial that her son could be an addict. But when faced with losing him, Anita faced his battles, along with hers, with bravery and determination.
This powerful mother-son story is chronicled in their co-authored book, S.O.B.E.R*. Mike has been in Dallas since 2011 and has been very involved as a respected lacrosse coach, and many will know him from the local recovery community as well.
