“The Cedar Canoe; What Happened to Ryan?” was written as a first step in my own healing journey. Blogging is another avenue that I choose to use and hope it may also inspire others to write or to read and perhaps relate to something. Proceeds of the book are given to an award that we give every year to a student graduating from our High School who has contributed to drug and alcohol awareness or suicide awareness or may be going on to school in those areas. We have helped six students and given $5000 in award money so far. A beautiful cedar canoe was the last thing that Ryan created in his life. The book is available at amazon.com as well as through me!
