Board members John and Michelle Makris chaired the benefit that honors their son, who died at age 23 from an overdose. ‘We observed a change in Brice’s behavior toward the end of his senior year at Florida State University,’ Michelle Makris said. ‘Within weeks of this discovery, he began treatment. We learned that addiction is a brain disorder; it’s a disease. Tragically, the disease overcame our son, and we’re sharing his story to help other parents who are fighting in their kids’ corner to battle this disease.’
